Stewardship Program

The Stewardship Program provides monitoring and management of conservation easements and lands held by the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources for stream and wetland mitigation.

To conserve, protect and enhance the natural resources of North Carolina, the Department of Environment and Natural Resources and related agencies protect restored or high-quality natural areas through easement purchases or fee simple acquisitions. These state-held conservation lands must be managed in perpetuity to protect water quality, wildlife habitat and open space.

To protect the ecological integrity of these conservation properties, stewardship activities include:

  • Monitoring
  • Legal Protection and Enforcement
  • Site-Management Activities

Detailed information about the Stewardship Program is provided here.
