Hoglan 3 Believe it or not - November & December are two of the  busiest  months for the Foothills team!  As the fiscal year comes to a close, the majority of East Tennessee landowners interested in  placing a conservation easement on their property complete the final paperwork in order to create a formal preservation agreement. FLC's Executive Director, Bill Clabough, and FLC's Land Director, Meredith Clebsch, are currently making several site visits to these properties. They record the environmental values, historical, and building site information necessary to complete a Baseline Documentatin Report (BDR) for each tract. Once the BDR's, CE's and Board Approval are complete, the land will be preserved forever in it's natural state. Be on the lookout for our 'diverse' list of 2010 easements and their descriptions, which will be highlighted early next year.    
 
At this time, FLC would like to extend our appreciation to the following FLC Board Members whose term expires at the end of 2010. They are:
 
Matt Alexander
David Fielder
Judi Forkner
Mark Hartsoe
Jeanie Hilten
R.B. Summitt
 
Their hard work, resources and time to our organization are very much appreciated and they will certainly be missed.  Learn more about FLC's Board of Directors & staff here...
