What’s Happening Outside w/ Columbia Land Conservancy

The Columbia Land Conservancy has been great about keeping us updated on outdoor activities. Here’s a recent sampling:

Visit Ooms and Overmountain Conservation Areas and you may hear a familiar call – the bobolink! Back in Columbia County for the summer, these birds are here to nest and love the grasslands, so it’s more important now than ever to keep your dog on a leash while visiting these places.

You may see some new visitors at Overmountain Conservation Area! CLC is leasing land to Cowberry Crossing Farm who are grazing sheep there. The grazing helps to maintain historic pasture and improve habitat for wildlife.
