More Headwaters State Forest Land To Be Bought - Brevard NC


The Duke Energy Water Resources Fund has donated $100,000 to the N.C. Conservation Fund to purchase more land for inclusion in the Headwaters State Forest.

Roughly 4,200 acres of land have been purchased so far from former Congressman Charles Taylor. The goal is to eventually purchase 8,000 acres of land in the East Fork area of Transylvania County.

This tract is one of the largest remaining privately owned tracts in western North Carolina.

The property has particular significance as it connects more than 100,000 acres of existing conserved lands in North and South Carolina.
