2017 Success

Grantee:  The Land Trust for Tennessee

Result: 685 acres and one climbing area protected

With support from The Land Trust of Tennessee and The Conservation Fund, a group of partners led by Access Fund and Southeastern Climbers Coalition purchased Denny Cove from a private timber owner.  The 685-acre Denny Cove tract is now part of South Cumberland State Park. Transferring ownership was the final step in a multi-partner, six-year effort to secure permanent protection for this climbing area about 30 minutes outside Chattanooga.
