Conservation in Graham County

A $21,500 grant from the Appalachian Trail Conservancy will help Mainspring Conservation trust conserve a 504-acre property in Graham County.

Known as Simp Gap, 80 percent of the property is visible from various points along the A.T. It’s also host to many natural resources, including the rare Cheoah salamander and significant riparian habitats.

The grant will help cover costs related to land conservation transactions and is made possible by the ATC with revenue from the N.C. Appalachian Trail Specialty License Plate.
