The Ebb & Flow

Year in Review: 2021

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. 

We have protected new land, and cared for the land already under our protection:

  • Millgrove Plantation adds to larger Black River conservation effort with the permanent protection of 444 acres in Georgetown County;
  • LLT celebrated Earth day at the Keystone Tract to get outside and clean up debris 
  • 204 acres in South Carolina’s Ashley River Historic District in partnership with other local and national conservation organizations.
  • Most recently, 450 acres in Allendale County and 240 acres in Beaufort County, with more details about these special projects coming soon!

We would like to highlight some of our favorite pieces we’ve written from this past year:

We have welcomed new members to our Board of Trustees:

  • Susan Johnson, Ph.D., Director of Health Promotion at the Medical University of South Carolina, joined after representing MUSC on our Business Leadership Council for the past 6 years.
  • Former President of Business Development and Latin America at WestRock, and passionate conservationist, Jim Porter
  • Damian Joseph, Vice President of the London-based international PR firm, SE10, and Charleston native.
