Knap of Reeds Watershed Protection Project

This project will result in permanent protection of an 842‐acre undeveloped tract located in southern Granville County. The property is the largest privately‐owned tract of land located within the Knap of Reeds Creek Watershed that feeds Falls Lake.

There aren’t many privately-owned properties left in southern Granville County of this size. Acquiring the Gantt property has long been a big priority for us. We are very grateful to the Gantt family and to our partners for their commitment throughout this project.
