Havelock leaders work to create public preserve.

The NC Coastal Land Trust, Eastern Carolina Aviation Heritage Foundation and the City of Havelock are joining together to celebrate the partnership to create a public nature preserve along Slocum Creek while at the same time celebrating the preservation of the aviation heritage of the region.

City leadership, statewide preservation leaders and enthusiasts, aviation interests, and recreationalists will gather for an invitation-only event on Tuesday, September 17th at the Havelock Tourist and Event Center (201 Tourist Center Drive, Havelock) from 5 pm until 8 pm.

Guests will first join Commissioner George Liner by the gazebo in front of the Center as he shares the vision for the preservation of these recreationally and historically valuable lands along Slocum Creek. Then along with Coastal Land Trust executive director, Camilla Herlevich, the City  and the project’s major funders will dedicate the public nature preserve.  Guests will also be invited to walk along the path to witness firsthand the preserve. The evening will end with a reception inside the center where guests will tour the aviation exhibits and continue experiencing the full-vision of uniting nature, recreation, history and education in one location for the City of Havelock.

This nature preserve is supported by these major funders and partners: NC Division of Coastal Management, Duke Energy, Golden Leaf Foundation, Piedmont Natural Gas, NC Department of Justice, and the Harold H. Bate Foundation.
