Let's Protect The Lands

That Define Us

Community Conservation

Protecting the balance between people and nature

Our community conservation projects impact not only our natural communities, but engage the Lowcountry's human communities through active engagement, input and implementation. Community conservation returns demonstrable value to both residents and visitors alike, by protecting iconic landmarks and landscapes that will ultimately be accessible by all. These projects bring people and place closer together, telling a story today that will be handed down tomorrow and for generations to come.

The hope is that new and future generations will continue on the path of those who have gone before, benefiting from the knowledge and experiences of their predecessors, while adding new perspectives and skills for moving forward. The link of one generation to the next is essential for the continued strength and depth of meaningful conservation in the 21st century.
