Cape Fear Arch

A Collaborative Voice for Nature

The Cape Fear Arch is a special geologic feature stretching from Cape Lookout, NC to Cape Romain, SC that contains nationally significant animal and plant communities.

Created in 2006, the Cape Fear Arch Conservation Collaboration is a partnership of organizations and individuals interested in protecting this region while balancing the needs of man and nature.

Its mission is to develop and implement a community conservation vision to build awareness, protection and stewardship of the region’s important natural resources.


Conservation Plan

A Conservation Plan was developed in 2009 that identifies, evaluates, and prioritizes an interconnected network of essential core ecosystems in the Cape Fear Arch region and identifies gaps in the existing network for protection and restoration priorities. This strategic and inclusive approach to long-term planning will be provided as a tool to inform planning at regional and local levels.
