With Covid-19 restrictions limiting the face-to-face interactions and gatherings, Three Rivers Land Trust staff is developing virtual projects that students can do whether they are learning from home or remaining socially distanced in the classroom. In June staff applied for a grant to install a “critter cam” on a nesting platform located on Falls Reservoir in Badin, NC. This wifi-enabled camera would allow students to access live-streamed footage, making wildlife and weather observation accessible to everyone.
TRLT is also working with local high schools to develop Pollinator Garden Kits so that classes can easily develop their own pollinator gardens full of native wildflowers. If your school would like to be a part of the pollinator garden program, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

.8 * Join us October 9th at 9:30am as we paddle Tuckertown Reservoir.
Three Rivers Land Trust In September 2019, Phase I of the Alcoa Lands Project was completed. Phase I conserved 2,463 acres and 45 miles of shoreline along High Rock Lake. Now with the closure of Phase II Tuckertown, this project has conserved over 4,800 acres and 76 miles of shoreline along the Yadkin-Pee Dee. Tuckertown Reservoir, an impoundment of the Yadkin River, is known for its recreational opportunities and as a vital water resource for North Carolinians.
To celebrate this momentous achievement, the TRLT Paddle Club is hosting our next group paddle event in Tuckertown Reservoir on October 9th, 2021 at 9:30am. We launch from the Bringles Ferry Boating Access Area (3301 Bringle Ferry Road) and Paddle to the Flat Creek Access (450 Wildlife Access Road). This paddle is 3.8 miles and will take the group about two and a half hours to complete.
We encourage paddlers to organize their own shuttles. Limited shuttles will be available, but must be prearranged. Please contact email@example.com
