Three Rivers Land Trust acquires 10 acres in middle of Two Rivers Project

SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) - Salisbury-based Three Rivers Land Trust, formerly The LandTrust for Central North Carolina, is excited to announce the recent purchase of 10 acres located adjacent to the South Yadkin Refuge Project in Rowan County.

Earlier this year, the Land Trust acquired a 40-acre tract to the west of these nine acres. The Land Trust already owns the land to the east and north of the newly acquired tract, so when this inholding became available for purchase, the Land Trust acted quickly to secure it.

The 10-acre property is a mix of field and mature hardwood forest, with frontage on two unnamed tributaries to the South Yadkin River. The water intake for the City of Salisbury is located just south of this property, so conserving these mature hardwood buffers will protect water quality for residents and businesses.

“The Land Trust is grateful to the Young family for working with us to add this important puzzle piece to our conserved lands in this area,” states Executive Director Travis Morehead. “Acquiring this property allows us to expand our habitat management efforts and protect a great wildlife corridor along these tributaries.”
