Registered Heritage Areas
What are Registered Heritage Areas?
Our newest registry protects 8,000 acres around Jordan Lake, in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers through the Jordan Lake MOU Registry Amendment!
What criteria qualify an area for Registry?
For each registered area, an agreement is written that describes the ways the landowner and the Natural Heritage Program will work together to preserve the biological diversity of the natural area, protect the natural qualities, and maintain the area in as nearly a natural condition as possible. The agreement can be canceled at any time, although the Natural Heritage Program appreciates 30 days written notice.
