400 acres Fee Title Ownership
A project that has been many years in the making has finally been protected—400 acres at the confluence of the Yadkin-South Yadkin Rivers, more commonly known as “The Point.” This property is the keystone piece in the Two Rivers Focal Area, a region where The LandTrust has focused its efforts since the inception of the organization. With the purchase of this property, we now own nearly 1,400 acres here—protecting important habitat for wildlife, waterfowl, in addition to a scenic stretch for canoeing, and the water intake for the City of Salisbury.
This site is not only significant because of natural features, which includes mature bottomland hardwoods and native grasslands which provide habitat for a variety of wildlife including songbirds, but has Native American archeological significance as well.
The purchase of this property was made possibly by a combination of a donation from Fred and Alice Stanback, a loan from The Conservation Fund, and funding from The City of Salisbury and the N.C. Clean Water Management Trust Fund.
