Davidson Lands Conservancy owns a conservation easement with Dr. Tom and Kris Batchelor of Davidson on their property near the intersection of Shearers Road and East Rocky River Road in Davidson.
The easement protects 7 acres of upland, sloping to within 0.1 mile of the Rocky River, including woodland, water-quality buffer, and open field. Protected woodland adjoins common area of the Runnymede neighborhood.
“The easement reflects our commitment to maintaining the rural character and conservation values of this area,” said Tom Batchelor. “The tax benefits that come with this voluntary easement donation may make it possible for us to place easements on additional properties in the area.”
