The Nature Conservancy has received 56 acres that will eventually be added to the Chimney Rock State Park, according to the Associated Press.
The new acquisition will help protect property between the state park and the conservancy’s Bat Cave preserve.
The A.P. reported that state legislators created the state park at Chimney Rock in 2005, and the state has purchased about 3,500 acres for the park in Hickory Nut Gorge.
Chimney Rock State Park is located about 20 miles southwest of Asheville.
