Project #121 – Wild Boar
This 1,100+ acre property lies within the two Tennessee counties of Coffee and Grundy. The tract adjoins two other FLC preserved properties of similar size.
Roughly two thirds of these 3400 acres consist of mixed hardwoods, with one third consisting of lakes, open fields, and a former sand mine. Throughout the three tracts, ephemeral wetlands have been noted. Much of the perimeter of the property includes the cliffs and ledges of the Cumberland escarpment – offering a diversity of wildlife, plants, and habitat types. Several rare plants have been noted on or near the property, including American smoke tree and fameflower.
