On the last day of 2020, the Tennessee Land Trust closed its 14th conservation project of the year, protecting 30 acres of forestland in Harrison in Hamilton County with landowners Kendra and Alan Cameron.

This is the second conservation easement the trust has completed with the Cameron family and another conservation success for Hamilton County, officials said.

Last January, the Camerons and Land Trust for Tennessee Board Member Greg Vital joined together to protect 114 acres of farmland in the Harrison Community.

That was 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, jump starting efforts in the Chattanooga region.
