TSRA Donates to Reconnect the Cumberland Trail and Protect Nearby Streams

Tuesday, November 26, 2019 4:54 PM | Anonymous

TSRA's Board of Directors has approved a $5,000 contribution to help purchase and conserve the Lone Star Tract on the Cumberland PlateauTennGreen is leading this project to purchase 6,650 acres that will ultimately become a significant addition to Cumberland Trail State Park, providing the opportunity to reconnect a key segment of the Cumberland Trail, restore a critical wildlife corridor and protect nearby rivers and streams.

Lone Star has over 22 miles of freshwater streams that flow into three separate watersheds: Daddys Creek Lower, Daddys Creek Middle and Piney Creek. The tract includes a section of river frontage on Daddys Creek and the headwaters of Fall Creek (Ozone Falls). Because much of the Lone Star property has been impacted by timber harvest and mineral extraction, this acquisition is imperative to protect the water quality of these streams and watersheds.
