Euharlee Wildlife Refuge on Dobbins Mountain is Certified by State

In a major development, the director of the Wildlife Resources Division of the Georgia Department of Natural Resources recently certified that the Euharlee conservation easement at Dobbins Mountain provides “wildlife habitat protection through the conservation of high priority species and habitats.” Click here to read the letter.

Now that DNR has certified that one of the major purposes and functions of the conservation easement is for a wildlife refuge, together with the City of Euharlee’s designation of the easement as a significant wildlife refuge, federal law requires GDOT to abandon its proposed 411 Connector route (Route D-VE), and to pursue a feasible and prudent alternative. Once the Federal Highway Administration acknowledges these determinations by DNR and the City of Euharlee, the wildlife refuge at Dobbins Mountain will be permanently preserved.
