LUMPKIN COUNTY, GA (458 acres) - The forested property rises from the Chestatee River high onto steep slopes near Dahlonega, Georgia. The tract nearly adjoins another 721 acre FLC protected property with both lands connected by the Chestatee River (pictured). Another conservation easement protects more land along the river corridor within a few miles north.  Protection of the land not only preserves the ecology of the area but also the public scenic views from both the river and surrounding vicinity. The easement will support maintaining the natural and rural character of the region that is well-known for tourism, scenery, and recreation.
