Walnut Hill preserved
Triangle Land Conservancy is in the business of preserving open space for the Triangle community. We are thrilled to be entering the final phases of purchasing Walnut Hill Farm, a 400-acre historic tract of rich soils, creeks, woodlands and pastures that will ultimately be turned into a nature preserve for Triangle residents.
TLC couldn’t have done it alone. Four entities shared a vision for future generations and worked together as a public-private partnership to make it happen: The Wake County Commissioners – as noted in The News & Observer’s supportive Aug. 23 editorial, “More than a farm,” – voted unanimously to allocate $1.6 million in public monies toward the purchase; North Carolina’s Clean Water Management Trust Fund provided great leverage of state dollars; TLC’s can-do steadfastness; and especially the generosity of the Williamson family.
TLC profoundly thanks the county commissioners, the staff at CWMTF and the Williamsons. And we thank our members, whose unstinting support over the last 30 years has helped the organization to flourish, protecting over 16,000 acres of amazing properties across this rapidly developing region for future generations.
