The tract is located in the middle Chattahoochee River watershed, which flows out of Atlanta. The Georgia State Unified Watershed Assessment indicates this impaired watershed is in most need of restoration. A stream bank revetment project is underway with the Natural Resource Conservation Service.
Located between metropolitan Atlanta and Columbus Georgia, near a major Interstate corridor, this large tract is know locally as the "Preserve". It adjoins the Franklin D. Roosevelt State Park and contains rare Montane Longleaf Pine. A notable mix of species common to the Appalachian Mountains, Piedmont and the Coastal Plain are also found here.
The mission of the Ida Cason Callaway Foundation is to educate people about the living world around them through educational workshops, seminars, lectures, exhibits and a variety of interactive experiences. Traditional use of the property includes forest management, wildlife management, recreation and education. Callaway entered the project to protect and maintain the longleaf pine forest and the plum-leaf azaleas on the land.
