Your support in South Carolina is meeting urgent challenges facing our state’s lakes and rivers, oceans and coasts, native forests and critical lands.
- SECURING FRESH WATER: Fresh water connects us all in South Carolina. We’re protecting forests to filter runoff before it reaches our rivers, improving conditions for fish and water fowl and making sure we have enough clean water for our faucets and farms.
- SAFEGUARDING OUR OCEANS & COASTS: The coast is both a location and a way of life in the South. We’re rebuilding oyster reefs to protect shoreline communities and marine life and applying innovative mapping and policy efforts to make room in the sea for both fish and fishermen.
- RESTORING FORESTS: Open, park-like forests – shaped by natural fire – once ruled the southeast United States. We’re rekindling that majesty by using safe, strategic controlled burning to improve wildlife habitat and remove dangerous fuel buildup.
- PROTECTING CRITICAL LANDS: From the Southern Blue Ridge’s sun-dappled forests to the Lowcountry’s swaying marsh grasses, we’re working at an unprecedented scale to protect forests, river buffers, coastlines and wildlife corridors, as well as to secure sustainable state and federal funds for conservation.
