This property was donated to STPAL via a fee simple deed transfer in 2016.

The 315 acre Property exists as one naturally wooded tract in southeastern Douglas County, Ga.  The Property is along Anneewakee Creek in the Middle Chattahoochee-Lake Harding drainage basin. This tract consists of mixed pine and hardwood woodland and is generally bounded by subdivisions and rural woodland tracts. The Property is roughly bisected by Anneewakee Creek.  The tract would originally have consisted of a mix of upland hardwood and upland pine on the uplands trending into mesic hardwood forest and bottomland hardwood forest along the stream drains. The most distinctive features of the Property are the slopes and drains leading to and joining Anneewakee Creek.  Additional features are noted in Section A, page 3 below.  The Property is approximately 87% wooded.  The remainder is water course or electric ROW.

 

This Property has most recently been devoted to mixed timber and was being held for possible development.  During historical times, small scale timber, livestock, and row crop production occurred.  Currently, the Property is used for outdoor recreation, natural landscape protection, and timber production. No recent evidence of timber harvest was noted.  A portion (approx. 20 acres) of this parcel was retained by the previous landowner to convert to a solar energy production farm.
