Dykstra land in Moore County donated to Three Rivers Land Trust

Three Rivers Land Trust, headquartered in Salisbury and covering a 15-county region, has received the donation of a 30-acre property in Moore County.

The property, formerly owned by the late Sara Dykstra, was left to Three Rivers in her will. The property is a combination of field and forest and provides important habitat for a variety of flora and fauna.

Three Rivers Land Trust prides itself on managing the properties we own well to protect and enhance their conservation values both now and into the future,” Executive Director Travis Morehead said. “We encourage other conservation-minded individuals to consider a similar planned gift of property to Three Rivers Land Trust in your estate as a way of leaving a legacy for future generations.”

Three Rivers has staff members who are experienced in land management, including prescribed burning, invasive species removal and habitat enhancement. It manages over 3,000 acres owned in fee.

“Leaving your property to the Land Trust is an excellent way to ensure that the conservation values of the property are protected in perpetuity, the organization said in a news release.

As a result of the recent merger between Three Rivers Land Trust and Sandhills Area Land Trust, the agency now operates in five additional counties, including Cumberland, Moore, Hoke, Harnett and Scotland.

Landowners in any of these counties who want to explore conservation options for property should contact Director of Conservation Crystal Cockman at the Land Trust at 704-647-0302 or crystal@threeriverslandtrust.org.
