Preserve Communities to Honor Authentic Cape Charles Coastal Living at Bay Creek 350 Acres of the Community to be Placed into Permanent Conservation
CAPE CHARLES, V.A.– (February 18, 2020) – Preserve Communities has designated 350-acres from inside the Bay Creek community to serve as a permanent Nature Preserve. To honor the authentic coastal living Bay Creek is known for, the land set aside in the Nature Preserve will be dedicated toward exploration and preservation and remain protected against future development.
The Nature Preserve will encompass peaceful woodlands, traversed by clear running creeks and tranquil ponds, naturally populated with hundreds of species of wildlife. Natural coves along the shoreline will
provide residents private access to outdoor health and wellness activities such as morning yoga and sunset gatherings.
A thoughtfully developed ‘BaseCamp’ will be introduced to act as the epicenter of the Nature Preserve.
Members will be able to enjoy a host of multi-generational activities, from camping and fishing to kayaking and paddleboarding on the scenic Old Plantation Creek. The BaseCamp will also be home to Bay Creek’s community garden.
“Virginia’s Cape offers a wonderful balance between the sprawling waterfront and pristine nature and wildlife, something which is unique to our location on the East Coast,” says Matt Hagler, Vice President Preserve Clubs & Resorts. “At Preserve Communities, we believe in thoughtful development, and by designating several hundreds of acres here in Bay Creek to conservation, we’re practicing just that.”
Bay Creek is also developing a partnership with Avid Trails, one of America’s top trail system design companies. Avid Trails is set to design and implement walking and biking trails, along with activity stations throughout the newly designated preserve areas – all with the intent of providing a smooth, natural connection from the front door to the outdoors.
