SUFFOLK, Va. (AP) - More than 2,800 acres of old timberland in Suffolk will become part of a new state nature preserve.
The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation recenlty acquired the property for $2 million. It previously was owned by International Paper.
The property and a 297-acre tract in Southhampton County will become the South Quay (KEE') Sandhills Natural Area Preserve.
Darren Loomis with the state agency tells The Virginian-Pilot that there is no public access to the preserve. But field trips will be offered in the future.
