Since 1969, when it completed its first project in South Carolina by acquiring 1,711 acres of cypress-tupelo forest at Four Hole Swamp, The Nature Conservancy has led land protection efforts in the state, engaging public-private partnerships to maximize the benefit of conservation for people and nature. The South Carolina Chapter officially was chartered in 1978 and, to date, has protected more than 330,000 acres. Review the SC Chapter History/Timeline here.
