Dedication of Morgan Creek Preserve

Today at 1 p.m., the Town of Chapel Hill and the North Carolina Botanical Garden will celebrate the creation of the Morgan Creek Preserve, a 92-acre natural area in town along Morgan Creek, beginning at Smith Level Road and extending downstream to include Merritt's Pasture. The town retains ownership of the land, but it is being placed under permanent conservation easement to be managed by the Garden. Join us for the ceremony, which will take place at the top of the pasture. It was an honor and a pleasure to be on the Council committee that worked to make preserving this greenspace possible.
