2015 Land Report 100: Louis Bacon
No. 45 Louis Bacon
218,331 acres | 210,278 under conservation
In the last two years, conservation philanthropist Louis Bacon made continued inroads to build upon conservation and restoration initiatives across his properties and worked to protect other special places throughout the country. In 2014, The Moore Charitable Foundation partnered with Middlebury College to establish the Bread Loaf Preservation Fund, which will preserve and maintain the Bread Loaf campus and the surrounding forests and fields while also supporting educational programming and recreational activities. Much of the 2,100 acres will be protected through a conservation easement held by the Vermont Land Trust working in collaboration with The Nature Conservancy. The Orton Foundation, the North Carolina affiliate of Bacon’s Moore Charitable Foundation, supports The Nature Conservancy’s efforts to restore the iconic longleaf pine forest throughout North Carolina’s Coastal Plain. At Orton Plantation, Bacon is restoring thousands of acres of longleaf pine forest through controlled burns and other management practices with the goal of restoring 11,000 acres by 2017.
