About Us

The mission of the Triangle Greenways Council is to promote greenways and trails in the Triangle area of North Carolina through public information services, to advocate for the creation of interconnected greenways that will serve all Triangle residents, and to preserve land for future greenway corridors.

An all-volunteer organization, it owes its existence to dedication and support from members of the public. Those members donate their time by engaging in special projects and a select few sit on the Council’s Board. The primary functions of the Council are land acquisition, public service projects, education and community outreach.

Donate and Support

As a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, Triangle Greenways Council accepts donations at any level of generosity. All donations go toward education, promotion, and service projects for conservation and expansion of greenway corridors for public benefit. All funds are managed in strict adherence to nonprofit fiscal and ethical standards by the all-volunteer organization.

The organization is uniquely devoted to securing properties along riparian corridors that contribute to the expansion of future greenways in the Triangle region. The Board of Director’s has facilitated the conservation of 750-plus acres through the activities of its Land Trust Committee. Triangle Greenways is currently focused on the Walnut Creek Greenway corridor in southeast Raleigh, Crabtree Creek greenway corridor in north Raleigh, Middle Creek greenway corridor in southern Wake County, Neuse River Mountains to Sea Trail corridor in Johnston County, and upper Neuse River watershed greenway corridors in Wake and Durham Counties.
