The Trust

Preserving More Than Land

With a history rich in preservation and built on a commitment to the land, Balsam Mountain Preserve is just that — a preserve. And at its heart is the Balsam Mountain Trust , a nationally-recognized, non-profit organization that has emerged as a leader in education, research and conservation leadership.

The mission of Balsam Mountain Trust is to inspire people to be responsible stewards of the natural and cultural resources of the southern Blue Ridge Mountains. The Trust gives residents a front-row seat to the sights, sounds and enriching experiences that Balsam’s 3,200 acre preserve and wildlife conservation offers.
