212 Acres

Donated by Greg and Michelle Paschal in 2011, this mostly wooded tract extends 1.7 miles along Town Creek and contains a large portion of McElmurray Pond. Along with Long Leaf Pine, Loblolly Pine and many other hardwood species there is a very large Chinkapin that could be a state champion for this increasingly uncommon plant.


“There is somewhat of a misconception around conservation easements that a property under easement can no longer be used or sold or left to future generations.  Rather than seeing the easement as a restriction, though, we viewed it as a way to preserve a piece of property for the future and still be able to use it exactly how we want to now.  People should be aware that they can sculpt their easement to allow many uses.”
