Two Donations of Timberland

July 28, 2022


Two Panhandle businesses donated parcels of timberland to Bay County Conservancy in 2022. Marlen Development Company, which developed Mowat Highlands subdivision, donated 49 acres of land in northeast Bay County. It is in an area that once burned, which explains why it is accessed by "Burnt Out Road"!, but the land is regenerating, and much of the property is in a wetland drainage area.


And attorney Robert Kerrigan donated 20 acres of timberland in Calhoun County near the town of Altha. This property is north of Highway 20 and west of Highway 73. One corner of it is in a wetland, as well.


We are grateful to these donors who allow us to expand our network of properties where native wildlife can thrive in natural habitat.
