The Salisbury-based Three Rivers Land Trust has announced a recent donation from Cube Hydro Carolinas for $20,000 that will go toward the “Save the Yadkin” campaign.
 
The “Save the Yadkin” campaign is an effort led by Three Rivers Land Trust to conserve over 4,700 acres and 76 miles of shoreline on the Yadkin River. These funds will be used to purchase Phase I, which includes over 2,300 acres along Yadkin and South Yadkin Rivers, upstream from High Rock Lake. Over $5.7 million has been raised, leaving another $2.0 million needed to purchase Phase I.

Three Rivers Land Trust and its partner, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC), are continuing to raise funds for the permanent conservation of these lands. The public has had access to these lands for over 30 years for hiking, hunting, fishing, and paddling. Once conserved, NCWRC will own these lands and the public will have access to them in perpetuity.

The Land Trust and NCWRC are targeting the acquisition of these lands by September 2019 as originally contemplated by the Relicensing Settlement Agreement. If the Land Trust and NCWRC are successful in conserving these lands on the river, they will have two additional years to purchase Phase II of the Alcoa Lands, 2,400 acres on Tuckertown Reservoir.
