Past Event: March 28: OLLI Tour of a Conservation Easement
by Carla on January 18th, 2017

Tuesday, March 28;  9:00am-11:45am

This class is a walking tour of a Conservation Easement managed by the Oconee River Land Trust and owned by Nick and Jane Bath. The walk will wind through hardwood forest and along the Apalachee River in Morgan County where remnants of a dam and bridge are located from historic Snows Mill. The Baths will share why they protected their land with a Conservation Easement and how this ensures that the property will remain free of development forever. The goal of the class is to familiarize OLLI members with the concept of Conservation Easements and to appreciate the beauty of nature. Carpooling from Athens will be encouraged.
About the leaders: Nick and Jane Bath love the outdoors. Nick is a urologist but is quite adept with equipment used outdoors and knows a great deal about plants. Jane was a landscape designer, owned a nursery and finds plants, along with her husband, a love they both share.

This class will be led through the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) which provides educational opportunities for its members ages 50+. For more information on joining OLLI and attending the walk, please visit the OLLI website.
