Float VBC is working with The Nature Conservancy to list their Bluffton Property as a public canoe and kayak launch. By working with The Nature Conservancy to list the Bluffton property we will be providing instrumental public signage on Highway 65 to help retain tourist while developing healthy activities for our general public and our youth.
As part of listing the Bluffton preserve as a launch TNC has requested that we create a group to help oversee the property during the summer season. The oversight of the property will be done in weekly shifts with a volunteer being responsible for one week a year consisting of visiting the preserve two to three times to insure that the property is being respected.
We are having a meeting on March 4th at the Bluffton Preserve located at end of Watergate Road. Take Highway 65 North from Clinton 6.5 miles to Watergate Rd on your left. Take a left turn on Watergate Rd and continue on Watergate Rd for 3.8 miles staying right at both intersections. Lunch will be provided for this meeting and I encourage you to join us it is important to show community support for this project. I will be relaying additional information as I receive it. This is an open group – please invite anyone you think might be interested. Please contact The Clinton Chamber of Commerce with any questions.
