      The George and Julia Brumley Family Nature Preserve is located in western Orange County, approximately 2 miles southeast of the town of Hillsborough. In the 1990’s, a subdivision was planned for a section of the property off of New Hope Church Road. George and Julia Brumley were passionate about land conservation and purchased the land to manage it for conservation and for traditional uses like forestry, farming, and hunting. After the Brumleys’ unfortunate passing, the Zeist Foundation sold the property in 2010 to Triangle Land Conservancy. Brumley was purchased with the help of the Clean Water Management Trust Fund, the Warner Foundation, City of Raleigh, Upper Neuse Clean Water Initiative, and the Pearson Stewart Land Opportunity Fund established through TLC’s Our Water, Our Land campaign.

      The Brumley Nature Preserve is a model for sustainable land management practices. The preserve benefits the region by connecting people with the land through a variety of recreational and educational opportunities, protecting ecological communities, and safeguarding Raleigh’s water supply as part of the Neuse River Basin.
