Forty Acre Rock is part of the Flat Creek Heritage Preserve. The area has been a popular recreation spot for years, but had become abused and was in desperate need of management before the Conservation Bank came to the rescue. Along with funds from The Nature Conservancy, South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, The Cooperative Endangered Species Conservation Fund and the Conservation Bank this area will be preserved for years to come. Flat Creek is a major tributary into the Lynches River in Lancaster which supports one of the healthiest populations of the Carolina Heelsplitter, a federally endangered species. The acquisition of Forty Acre Rock will increase the buffer along Flat Creek from 1.9 miles to 4.6 miles.
