Buncombe County Conservation Hall of Fame Awards

Thursday, September 16th, the Members of the Buncombe County Land Conservation Advisory Board held the 3rd Annual Buncombe County Conservation Hall of Fame Awards at Claxton Farm in Weaverville, NC to celebrate the extraordinary accomplishments in  conservation in Buncombe County. The LCAB helps promote the use of voluntary land conservation easements to preserve the county’s beauty and ecology.  Buncombe County is the only NC County to develop this citizen, private/public partnership.
Executive Director of the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy and Board Member of the Buncombe County Land Conservation Advisory Board, Carl Silverstein, presented awards to landowners that had given donations of conservation easements during the past year through SAHC. Among those who received awards were Martha Ann and Porter Claxton and Fairman and Kate Jayne who are both landowners that have partnered with SAHC to establish conservation easements on their properties. The Claxton’s hosted the event on their property and were named Conservationists of the Year.
