The goal of this project is the protection through Fee Simple Acquisition of 168 acres of riparian area on McLendons Creek. The stretch of McLendons Creek adjacent to the Crisp Property is located within the “Deep River below High Falls Aquatic Habitat”, an ‘exceptional’ Natural Area as designated by The North Carolina Natural Heritage Program. Additionally, McLendons Creek is a tributary of the Deep River which is designated as a High Quality Watershed by the state of North Carolina. The Crisp Property is located approximately 1.5 river miles from the confluence of McLendons Creek and the Deep River. We need $440,000. We have secured a 2 year option from the landowners.
