State program designates Box Creek Wilderness as 24th most significant natural heritage area in N.C.
Amidst a public dispute between private landowner Tim Sweeney and Rutherford Electric Membership Corporation, the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources’ Natural Heritage Program has designated Box Creek Wilderness, the private land in contention, as the 24th most significant natural heritage area in the state out of more than 2,400 similar properties.
Months of debate, studies and discussion about where Rutherford Electric Membership Corporation should build 2.5 miles of power lines have come to a halt: In January, REMC filed a 25-page request for an easement that would let the utility build power lines through Box Creek Wilderness, a 5,100-acre forest tract that straddles the county line between Rutherford and McDowell. Local groups and the property owner have launched a campaign against it, including a petition, Facebook page and video. (Image courtesy of Unique Places to Save)
