Three Rivers Land Trust // CBC Collaboration

Three Rivers Land Trust, Cabarrus Brewing Company and Carolina Malt House partnered together to create the Three Rivers Blonde Ale — a local beer, brewed with locally sourced grains, made in support of the Land Trust’s mission to conserve rural landscapes, family farms and river corridors. Along with the new beer, Market Street Studios provided video production services to help with the conservation.

Three Rivers Land Trust is working to raise approximately $16 million in hopes of conserving approximately 4,700-acres of publicly accessible land and 76 miles of undeveloped shoreline along the Yadkin River.

The appetite for land seems insatiable. Hundreds of acres of agricultural lands, natural areas and open spaces, historic sites and timberland that have defined Central North Carolina since time immemorial, vanish each day.

Operating in a fifteen – county region – Anson, Cabarrus, Davidson, Davie, Iredell, Montgomery, Randolph, Richmond, Rowan, Stanly, Moore, Hoke, Scotland, Cumberland, and Harnett – The Land Trust believes that they must leave a legacy for future generations.

A broad cross section of citizens have come together to offer reasonable, attractive options to landowners who want to save their lands for future generations to enjoy. Their mission is to work thoughtfully and selectively with property owners to preserve the lands, the vistas and the essential nature of the region.

As a private non-profit, they depend upon the generosity of those who care deeply about the central Piedmont and Sandhills. Contributions from individuals, corporations and foundations make it possible for the Land Trust to save lands and preserve our quality of life.

On September 19, 2019 Three Rivers Land Trust, The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission , and their conservation partners permanently conserved 2,463-acres and 45 miles of shoreline on the Yadkin River above High Rock Lake. This is a massive conservation success for the region and the entire state of North Carolina.

Now, they have until September 19, 2021 to raise an additional $8+ million to conserve the 2,300-acres along Tuckertown Reservoir. Three Rivers Land Trust invites you to contribute to the acquisition of these lands at whatever level you are able to give, so you too can be a part of this momentous conservation achievement.

We had an absolute blast offering our video production services as a force for good and help with conservation efforts in North Carolina!
