In 1967 descendants of the original Calhoun settlers donated the stretch of forest known as the Cathedral Pines — a magnificent old-growth pine forest that was part of the Coltsfoot Valley, and that was largely destroyed by three tornadoes in the 1980s. The forest has begun to grow back; the Nature Conservancy turned over management of the 42-acre parcel to the CCT in December 2020.

By designating conservation easements on the acreage, CCT was able to identify 20 developable lots while still conserving the land. A walkable path now runs through the Coltsfoot acreage, thanks to the planning of the Coltsfoot Valley Association of landowners. Hikers can now traverse a new wooden bridge that spans Birdseye Brook, named for the family who once lived here.
