2020 Timelines: History

On Jan. 8, Foothills Conservancy of North Carolina acquired 68 acres of woodlands and former pasturelands near Finger Bridge, along the Jacob Fork River in Catawba County. The conservancy will transfer the property to North Carolina State Parks, which will manage public river access for recreational activities like paddling and fishing. This includes the planned installation of a canoe launch for paddlers to utilize this stretch of scenic river.
