Just Conserved: 6 acres on the Neshobe River

Thursday, February 28th, 2013

6 acres of the Dilts property was dramatically impacted by Tropical Storm Irene in August 2011, when the Neshobe River flooded these wooded  floodplain forests.

This area functioned properly as a floodplain forest by collecting organic debris, sediment and slowing down flood waters, lessening floodwater impacts to downstream Brandon.

This parcel could have been cleared or developed in the future, but with the help of thoughtful landowners, VRC is ensuring the river will be allowed to move freely and the essential functions of the floodplain forest are protected.
