FLC's Land Partnerships (Part 4)!
Tennessee Counties:
Blount - Bradley - Knox

Blount County - Camp Montvale -364 Acres
R0012434 2

Blount County's beloved and long-time children's camp, Camp Montvale, now has a permanent land protection agreement! 364 acres of woodlands, cabins, creeks, ponds, and hiking trails will be preserved for future generations of children, adults and wildlife. Land adjacent to the property includes the Foothills Wildlife Management Area, which FLC initially worked to secure in the mid-90's, and one that has now grown to more than 10,000 acres. (FWMA is managed by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.)  FLC is so pleased to be a part of this preservation effort and we will include more details about the Montvale partnership in the coming weeks.


Blount County - 22 Acres
Gideon Fryer has been a long time supporter of Foothills and recently decided to place a conservation easement on his 22 acres in Blount County. Located close to the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, Fryer's property is situated just below the Schoolhouse Gap Trail near Townsend. The preservation of this property ensures that the land's scenic views will stay in tact as well as it's value to providing a  wildlife corridor/buffer area close to the GSMNP.

Knox County- 130 Acres (2 tracts)
Claussen 2 Tract one is situated along the French Broad River near Kodak, TN. It includes a 30 acre island within the French Board and is located across from the Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge. The land is also adjacent to a 28 acre FLC conservation easement  (also part of SIWR). The other property is located along the Tennessee River near the junction of the French Broad and Holston River. Both properties offer open space and vegetation along their river banks. SIWR is known for over a 150 variety of bird species and includes native grasses and wooded areas.

Blount County - 67 Acres
Back in 2002, FLC worked with landowners to place a 900 acre FLC conservation easement on Hurricane Mountain. This December, the Hurricane Mountain Conservancy placed a 67 acre easement on adjacent lands with Foothills Land Conservancy.  The property overlooks Hesse Creek and West Millers Cove and is part of the trail system for Blackberry Farm guests. This beautiful tract includes a chapel and cemetery. The preservation of this property ensures that the land's scenic views will stay in tact as well as it's value to providing a  wildlife corridor/buffer area close to the GSMNP.


Bradley County - 312 Acres

This undeveloped property includes a creek and plenty of open space for wildlife. It extends along the boundary of Cohulla Creek and includes increasingly rare mature hardwood forests and unique wetland areas
