Nature Conservancy purchase to be added to Big South Fork

Monday, August 17th, 2015

LandPurchase_22699313_ver1.0_640_480A small but significant holding of private land at the southern end of the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area in East Tennessee is now in the hands of The Nature Conservancy.

The nonprofit conservation organization recently closed on 16.7 acres in Scott County that was formerly owned by a family who wanted the property protected for future generations. Among the tract’s special features is a sandstone double arch formed approximately 300 million years ago by the erosional forces of water, wind and ice.

“The rareness of the double arch and the fact that the property is bounded on two sides by the national park makes it extraordinary,” said Gabby Lynch, director of land protection for The Nature Conservancy.
