As reported in the New Bern Sun Journal on the above date, the NC Coastal Land Trust has purchased the land adjacent to Carolina Pines along Dam Creek. This area runs the length of the creek from its headwaters near highway 70 down to the Neuse River. It is in two pieces. A 6.78 acre tract that runs along the sandy beach of the Neuse River. The second tract runs along Carolina Pines Blvd. As a part of this purchase, one 38 acre tract was donated by the Eddie Ellis Development Corporation. Mr. Ellis actually grew up in this area and he and his family have always been terrific supporters of Carolina Pines. All of this land is now in permanent conservation.  Access to these lands for observation and photography of nature will be discussed with the managers of NC Coast Land Trust by CPU representatives in the near future.
