Boiling Springs Acquisition
On June 14, 2007, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service notified Swan Trust that a $25,000 grant had been approved.
The grant proposal was written to obtain funds for the purchase of the 17-acre Boiling Springs tract from David and Janice Smith, a local couple who has previously sold two parcels of their beautiful farm to Swan Trust.
The Smiths have played an important role in creating Big Swan Headwaters Preserve. At the closing in August, Boiling Springs was added to the Preserve, further enhancing habitat for birds.
