Regionally, PAC is a member of the North Carolina Land Trust Council and the Blue Ridge Forever 50, 000 acre collaborative initiative. Nationally, PAC is a member of The Land Trust Alliance. PAC has dedicated itself to creating alliances and working relationships with like-minded groups, such as Spartanburg Area Conservancy ( SPACE ), The Nature Conservancy, the Conservation Trust for North Carolina, Polk County Soil & Water, The Clean Water Management Trust Fund, The North Carolina Department of Agriculture & CS Plant Conservation Program, Save Our Slopes, and the Isothermal Planning and Development Commission, as well as local schools, realtors, Rotary clubs and other civic organizations, among others. Based in in Tryon NC, PAC focuses on the thoughtful conservation of mountains, watersheds, farms, forests and greenspace. The land trust helps protect habitat for flora and fauna, as well as scenic and agricultural resources. PAC is particularly interested in creating protection corridors along waterways, atop and aside mountains, and in the greenspaces of the area's horse farms. PAC works with landowners to help decide what happens to their land in the future and how best to protect their properties' natural resources in perpetuity. As water has become a critical issue, PAC is working to protect not only actual waterways, but also the buffers protecting them.
