Dedication of Big Swan Headwaters Preserve

July 10, 2017

The Tennessee Scenic Rivers Association (TSRA) congratulates the Swan Conservation Trust (SCT) on the July 8, 2017 dedication of a conservation easement on more than 1,300 acres of forested land known as the Big Swan Headwaters Preserve, adjacent to the “The Farm” in Lewis County. TSRA has contributed over $30,000 to SCT’s conservation efforts, and most recently helped SCT retire the debt on the Baggs Tract land purchase. The conservation easement, a legal tool that restricts development and timbering and will be upheld by the Tennessee Parks and Greenways Foundation (TennGreen), will forever conserve the forests, streams and seeps throughout the property.
