Tim Sweeney is using some of his fortune to help give back. He just recently donated about 7,5000 acres of land in his home state of North Carolina for the purposes of conversation.
The land is in the Roan Highlands, and more specifically, at the southern end of the boundary of the Yellow Mountain State Natural Area. The North Carolina general assembly announced in 2008 that this area would be the focus of new conversation efforts due in part to the “exceptional natural features” located there.
“It supports numerous threatened and endangered plant and animal species and features some of the most extraordinary scenery in the eastern U.S. The property includes the largest American Chestnut restoration project in the country, extensive boulder fields, rich coves, old growth forests, six waterfalls, and a system of rare heath-balds,” the Southern Appalachian Highlands Conservancy said in a news release.
