Billups Creek property being donated for use as nature park
Conrad M. Hall of Norfolk, is donating the parcel. He said during an interview Tuesday that he wants to keep the property in as natural a state as possible.
"If we can preserve as much of the county as possible, we think that’s a plus," he said.
The nature park and waterfront center will be used for teaching visitors about the history of the people of Mathews, the ecology of the land and surrounding waters, and the skills traditionally carried out by Mathews residents, such as farming, fishing, boat-building, seamanship, navigation, sailing and rowing.
