Conservation Efforts

Our Mission

The goal of the Haw River Trail is to help the public conserve the natural and scenic resources of the Haw River. Our conservation efforts help to improve water quality, create habitat for the river’s plants and animals, and improve property values in the region. Furthermore, our conservation work on the Haw River provides a scenic and protected landscape for the Haw River Trail. By bringing together landowners, local governments and funding sources, we are working to protect the future of the Haw River.

Why Conserve?
