In 2006 the Nesmith family donated 120 acres on Whitewater Creek (near the Starr’s Mill school complex) to the Trust. This donation provided a tax benefit to the family and currently preserves wetlands and an important link in the Trust’s Whitewater Creek corridor (the Camp Southern Ground conservation easement is also on Whitewater Creek.)
The Trust has developed an environmental study area including a soft trail and 300 foot boardwalk with sampling platforms for students to have hands on learning of the ecosystems within the creek and pond. This project was funded through community support and was constructed by D.C.Hudson Contracting.
Much Thanks to the boardwalk contributors:
- D.C. Hudson Contracting
- Jack Stephens Charitable Trust Gift
- Clothes Less Traveled Thrift Shop, Inc.
- Rotary Club of Peachtree City
- Wild Birds Unlimited
