The parcel contains approximately 3,000 feet of river frontage and includes the mouth of Rocky Branch. The purchase will connect the River Falls School Forest, which has been landlocked for years, to Glen Park and River Hills Park. It will also expand green space, prevent development, and provide river access to multiple user groups.

How will I be able to access the Community Forest?

  • A small parking lot will be created at the entrance off of Cty Rd FF with a ½ mile foot path to the property. There will be no public vehicular access.
  • Once owned by KRLT, individuals can access the property by foot through River Hills and Glen Park.

Where is the Community Forest located?

  • The Community Forest is located north of Birch Cliff development. Between Glen Park and the River Falls School Forest.

What are other ways that I can give?
