Davidson Lands Conservancy Adds More Canoe Racks

Posted on 02. Dec, 2012 by in Recent News

The Davidson Lands Conservancy, led by volunteer Sterling Martin, has added 4 canoe/kayak racks to Parham Park in Davidson.  Each rack will hold four canoes or kayaks, and thus helps to alleviate the shortage of racks on Lake Davidson and Lake Cornelius.

Altogether now the Davidson Lands Conservancy has added space for nearly 30 canoes on Davidson’s two lakes.  The Lake Davidson Nature Preserve, constructed in 2011, was the first public canoe and kayak access to Lake Davidson.  Sterling Martin also led our efforts at Lake Davidson, and the Town of Davidson named the nature trail at the Lake Davidson Nature Preserve in his honor.

“The more opportunities we provide for people to responsibly enjoy nature, the more likely they will help participate in the protection of land,” says Davidson Lands Conservancy president Rodney Graham.  “Efforts such as Sterling’s are thus a key part of our mission to protect land.”

The canoe/kayak racks at both Lake Davidson and Lake Cornelius are managed by the Town of Davidson, and are available for a fee.  For more information, please visit the town’s website at townofdavidson.org.
