Richland County Council, Conservation Commission and the Eleazer family signed on the dotted line and preserved the 250 year-old family land on Monday, December 10 as part of the County’s Conservation Easement Program.
The 62 acres are vital in helping to protect a sensitive ecological system of the Hollingshed Creek Watershed which drains to the Broad River. The Eleazer Family has a rich family heritage of agriculture, forestry, wildlife, recreation and conservation.
Citizens can volunteer their land and become partners with Richland County through a Conservation Easement agreement which protects valuable natural resources, ensures water quality, enhances wildlife habitat, and provides valuable green space in a rapid developing community.
For more information on Conservation Easements, Contact the Richland County Conservation Commission at 576-2084.
