Peggy Adams presents the 2016 “Peggy Adams Conservation Award” to Emmett I. Davis, Jr. Mr. Davis and his family donated a conservation easement with almost 11,000 acres in 2009. Since then they have place conservation easements on several thousand more acres, some of which has been sold with the easement on it. They now own over 13,000 acres with a conservation easement in the Hard Labor Creek and Cuffeytown Creek watersheds, making it one of the largest private protected areas in the state.
