Dawson County Conservation Land

Members of Rabun TU visit and review information about the 469-acre Dawson County tract, which includes two miles of a large, primary trout stream, Amicalola Creek.

Left to right: Jim Kidd, Rabun TU; Doug Adams, Rabun TU; Ken Riddleberger, DNR Game Management Regional Supervisor; Terry Rivers, Rabun TU; Charlie Breithaupt, Rabun TU.  The four Chapter members met with representatives of Georgia Department of Natural Resources/Wildlife Resources Division. The GA DNR requested TU support for the acquisition of this tract to connect 2 existing WMA tracts. This tract had been private and posted.

The GA TU Council donated $8,000 and the 12 GA Chapters of TU donated another $12,000 for a total GA TU donation of $20,000 all towards the purchase and protection of the 469 acre tract known as the Dawson Forest Forestar tract.  Rabun TU donated $1,050.

  • New Kiosks at Burrell’s Ford

    The Rabun Chapter recently donated funds to help pay for a new kiosk to be located at the Burrells Ford Bridge, near the trailhead to Ellicotts Rock. The kiosk will encourage visitors to practice “Leave No Trace” outdoor recreation. Read more here.
