Op-ed: “South Carolinians can help save the conservation bank”



Post & Courier Op-ed: “South Carolinians can help save the conservation bank”

February 25, 2017

 

On February 25th, The Post and Courier published an op-ed by Land Trust President & CEO Ashley Demosthenes and Board Member Burnie Maybank urging all South Carolinians to support the reauthorization of the South Carolina Conservation Bank.

The article states, “Our state population will soon exceed 5 million and is increasing at the astonishing rate of 104 people every day. We owe it to current and future generations of South Carolinians to protect what makes our state so beautiful and special, and the Conservation Bank is one important way to do that.”

For details on the value of the Conservation Bank to our state, please read the full article here:  “South Carolinians can help save the conservation bank”

We also urge you to learn more about the efforts to reauthorize the Conservation Bank at Palmetto Land + Water Legacy Alliance’s webpage: www.palmettolandwater.com
