A recent purchase by the Trust for Public Land and the USDA Forest Service adds 900 acres to Oconee National Forest. Although the addition is dwarfed by the 117,000 acre forest, this acquisition begins to protect the waters of Cedar Creek. Designated as an outstanding remarkable stream, Cedar Creek is one of the tributaries in the Oconee River Watershed. Purchased from the largest landholder in the United States, the funds were obtained from gas and oil royalties collected from public lands.
