HONEYSUCKLE TEA HOUSE CHILDREN’S PLAYGROUND
We believe the future of conservation is about creating unique places where we have exceptional experiences to celebrate our place in the beautiful cycle of life. The Honeysuckle Tea House and Farm is exactly that kind of place!
VIRTUAL TREE EXPERIENCE
Imagine visiting a beautiful arboretum with your family one spring day. At the Virtual Tree Lab, each of you puts on a Virtual Reality headset and stands at the foot of a towering (3D digital) hickory tree in a virtual forest. With one jump, you all soar to the top of the tree to observe its canopy leaves in detail. Then you descend the trunk and limbs for a close up look at its bark. Finally, you reach the base again for a subterranean look at its roots. Then the REAL fun begins….
Unique Places To Save is partnering with the City of Mebane, NC to lead a design charrette and master planning process that will garner community input for this remarkable rural property as part of their “city within a park” concept.
We are partnering with engineering professionals across the state of North Carolina, creating a network of conservation easements to protect stream and wetland mitigation for generations to come.
SPRINGER’S POINT MEMORIAL
Unique Places to Save was successful in raising over $17,000 to create an interpretive trail, signage and seating area highlighting the rare Georgia Sunrose plants at Springer’s Point Preserve on Ocracoke Island, owned and managed by the North Carolina Coastal Land Trust. The 120-acree Springer’s Point Preserve, celebrating its 10th anniversary, is the only location in the Outer Banks where this tiny, ground-hugging plant with exquisitely lovely yellow flowers can be found. The sensitive natural area in which the Georgia Sunrose population grows is truly special and worthy of further protection and enhancement.
