Identifying Trees in the winter draws crowd at Walnut Creek Preserve

Published 3:49pm Wednesday, February 27, 2013

For information on upcoming programs at Walnut Creek Preserve, please go to the PAC website at www.pacolet.org and look under the “Upcoming Events/Hikes” tab.

PAC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit conservation organization (land trust) founded in 1989 to Protect and Conserve the area’s natural resources (PACs mission). PAC works with area landowners to ensure the long-term protection of their property through voluntary conservation easements (agreements), which enable landowners to maintain ownership of their property, preserving precious natural resources (open lands, forests, wildlife habitat, scenic vistas, farmland, stream banks, etc.) and potentially obtain significant federal, state and local tax benefits. PAC’s vision is a community living and growing in harmony with our natural resources and or goal is to provide a legacy that will endure and be valued by generations to come.

PAC works diligently to provide leadership to encourage conservation and provide education programs emphasizing native species appreciation and responsible land use practices to help – save the places you love.

This year’s PAC and WCP programs are made possible, in part, by a grant from the Polk County Community Foundation’s Unrestricted Fund.
