Land Acquisition Highlights Waccamaw River CWMTF provided $440,287 to North Carolina Coastal Land Trust (NCCLT) to acquire approximately 600 acres along Waccamaw River, just downstream from the Waccamaw State Park in Columbus County. This award was matched with a $459,500 acquisition of almost 700 acres, funded by Department of Justice settlement funds, creating a total protect area of almost 1,300 acres. Orchard at Altapass In 2014, CWMTF provided a portion of the funding that permanently protected The Orchard at Altapass. This is the oldest orchard along the Blue Ridge Parkway and is a popular attraction, hosting approximately 50,000 visitors a year. Salmon Creek – Site X This site could hold clues to North Carolina’s oldest mystery, the lost colony of Roanoke. Initial surveys have indicated that the 995-acre project contains 18 different sites with archaeological significance. Faith Rock, Franklinville “Faith Rock offers an unexpected, beautiful view of the Deep River. The Faith Rock Revolutionary War story offers enough material for a short story or an exciting movie scene.” Dr. Troy Kickler, CWMTF Board of Trustee member and former Chairman. More project highlights are coming soon - stay tuned!
