Chestnut Mountain Project Online Forum
The Town of Canton and Haywood County need your input! We will be holding an online forum next week to help shape this amazing park. We would appreciate you all sharing this info with anyone who is interested in partnering with us!
Background on the Chestnut Mountain Project
The Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy (SAHC) had acquired 448 acres at Chestnut Mountain in Haywood County that will eventually be turned over to the Town of Canton to manage as a nature park. The acquisition will permanently protect sources of clean water and forested habitat in an important wildlife corridor. The property’s easy-to-access location off of US Hwy 19/23 just, east of the Town of Canton, presents possibilities for future public outdoor recreation.
The Town of Canton and Haywood County are working together on potential outdoor recreation plans for the property, with support from the Cruso Endowment. Recreational activities will be ones that work with the conservation of the property’s natural resources while providing healthy opportunities for our citizens to get outdoors. Your input is greatly appreciated!
