Conservation of the Mashie Stomp Creek property will help protect water quality in the headwaters of Mashie Stomp Creek and Deep Gap Branch. These tributaries to Jonathan Creek are immediately upstream of a drinking water supply source for the town of Maggie Valley. Protection of this property will save views from the Blue Ridge Parkway and on the boundary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The NC Wildlife Resources Commission will establish a new game land with this and neighboring properties, for the primary purpose of providing and enhancing habitat for the local elk population.
