DuPont Gains Acreage


Brevard, N.C. — A recent land acquisition has increased the size of DuPont State Recreational Forest while protecting the area from potential development and providing a safe haven to endangered amphibians.

The deal gives DuPont an additional 65 acres of land located between Stone Mountain and Old CCC Road in Henderson County. According to DuPont Forest Supervisor David Brown, the move was made possible by the Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy (CMLC) in an attempt to protect the environment.

“We really appreciate the efforts of the CLMC in negotiating the deal,” Brown said.
