The Office of the Duke Forest at Duke University announces the purchase of land at the corner of Old NC 86 and Eubanks Road in Orange County. We are excited to add this acreage to the Duke Forest’s Blackwood Division, which is critical to our research mission. The Blackwood Division has long been an important national and international destination for studies related to climate change, atmospheric chemistry, ecosystem health, and more. The addition of these lands helps preserve the integrity and viability of ongoing and future research and enhances our commitment to natural resource protection, specifically of the Meadow Flats Natural Heritage Natural Area.
Please note that because of the ongoing research uses, public access is not permitted in this part of the Blackwood Division.
