50. The Coldwater Mountain-Rowan Tract Addition
Date of Purchase: March 2, 2006
Location: Calhoun County
THE COLDWATER MOUNTAIN -ROWAN TRACT ADDITION in Calhoun County consists of 20 acre in-holding within the larger Coldwater Mountain Tract (purchase # 11). The 20 acre tract consists of a high elevation, pine-hardwood forest overlooking portions of Anniston and Oxford, Alabama. The tract secures a ridge route for future trail development, as well as contributing to the larger conservation goal of protecting a portion of the local watershed for Coldwater Spring, a unique ecological environment and source of drinking water for local municipalities.
