Conservation Easement

In 2007, Missy and Sandy Schenck put 2,600 acres of the Schenck Family Conservancy in a conservation easement with Carolina Mountain Land Conservancy and the Clean Water Management Trust. This action will preserve the land leased by Green River Preserve for the camp for perpetuity and generations of GRP campers. Along with protecting the Green River headwaters and watershed, the easement protects the land which is home to many endangered species of plants and wildlife. The National Federation of Wildlife recognizes Green River Preserve as a certified wildlife habitat.
