Salter's Creek Landing Project

North Carolina Coastal Land Trust

The Coastal Land Trust will purchase 5,500 acres of ecologically significant land, with 11 miles of scenic waterfront located  “Down East,” resulting in new resources for passive recreation.

Counties Impacted:

  • Carteret County

The 5,500-acre Salter’s Creek project combines protection of wildlife habitat water and water quality. In addition, it will add lands for passive recreation, and it helps prevent incompatible development near a vital US Marine Corps asset. Salter’s Creek has it all! ”
