Just before the New Year, Alan and Kendra Cameron, and Land Trust for Tennessee Board Member Greg Vital joined together to protect 114 acres of farmland in the Harrison Community of Hamilton County.

The Land Trust has now worked to protect more than 50,000 acres in the southeast in its first 20 years, including 2,300 acres in Hamilton County.

This is the second property Mr. Vital has protected in Hamilton County with The Land Trust. In 2006, he joined with another neighbor to protect 220 acres, jumpstarting efforts in the Chattanooga region.
