Ten Mile Lowlands

Property Name:

Ten Mile Lowlands

Donor:

FIP Corp

1987

Acquisition Date:

Acreage:

11.9

Location:

Cheshire Indust. Park

Habitat:

Wetlands, forest

Having protected lands within the watershed, such as CLT's Ten Mile River Preserve and Judd Brook, assists with maintaining wildlife habitats and good water quality.  Additionally, the Judd Brook Preserve adds to natural areas viewed by workers at the industrial park's businesses, especially during lunchtime walks along Knotter Drive.

Both properties are open to the public. Judd Brook is the more easily accessible of the two.  Look for a small pull-off area next to to a CLT sign (pictured above) along Knotter Drive just south of West Johnson Avenue.  Neither property has trails
