Abstract:
The Green River provided a barrier to the early settlers of Henderson County. The river is a rushing stream in some places and not more than a creek in others. Currently, the river is being considered as a potential State Natural and Scenic River, but the final decision still has to be voted on by citizens of Henderson and Polk counties.

Abstract:
Within a half a mile to two miles off the North Carolina coastline lie areas containing many varieties of sponges, fish, and other interesting forms of marine life. There is a movement underway to preserve these unique areas for future generations through the creation of designated natural areas. State designation means the area is permanently managed and protected and that no incompatible use would occur there. Three possible areas have been selected near New River and offshore Topsail Island and Masonboro Inlet.

Abstract:
The North Carolina Nature Conservancy, a nonprofit organization, works to save state land that has irreplaceable natural value. The Conservancy buys land using funds contributed by individuals, companies, and foundations and then transfers it to public ownership.

About $1.25 million has been designated to buy land at reserves, including Nags Head Woods, in Dare County; Lanier Quarry Savannah in Pender County; and the Green Swamp in the southeastern part of the state.
