The Ebb & Flow

The Ebb & Flow: December



Dear Friends,

I am sitting in my family’s cabin in the ACE Basin writing my final letter of 2021 to you all.  The oak table that my family has gathered around for years and enjoyed many meals, games, puzzles, etc often serves as my workspace when I seek solace.  As you can imagine, it brings me great peace and inspiration alike. As I look out the window and watch my children play in the pine woods, my heart is full of gratitude for nature and its equally tangible and elusive benefits to humankind.  I hope you and your loved ones have felt peace this holiday season, and are as eager as we are at LLT for a new year abundant with hope and possibilities.  

Our 35th year of protecting land in the Lowcountry is coming to a close. As we head into our 36th year, we would like to take a moment to reflect on what you helped us accomplish in 2021.

This year, we made great strides: we protected land across four (4) priority landscapes, fulfilled the promise of stewarding hundreds of conservation easements spanning the entire coastal plain, resumed in-person events with the 2021 Sporting Clays Shoot at White House Plantation, welcomed new Board and staff members, and had the honor of working with you, passionate conservationists.  The pandemic has not slowed us down.  On the contrary, it has amplified the fundamental necessity for open space and the ability to get outside and breathe the fresh air.  

Stay with us, and invite others to join, as we preserve more land, enhance our natural landscapes, protect wildlife habitat, and connect people to the outdoors. We can’t wait to share our plans for 2022 with you.

With gratitude,
Ashley Demosthenes
President & CEO 

2021 in Review

This year, we made great strides: we protected more land, got back to in-person events, fulfilled our stewardship responsibilities, and had the honor of working with passionate conservationists, all of whom have their own unique connection to protecting our Lowcountry landscape.

Join us in recapping and celebrating the end of another successful year of Lowcountry conservation.
