South Carolina

Coastal South Carolina, home to blackwater cypress river kayaking and priceless longleaf pine habitat, also is home to some of the fastest-growing areas on Atlantic Coast.

As one of the most conservation active funders in South Carolina, we are helping to restore the diverse longleaf pine ecosystem, and we were instrumental in protecting the last sizeable inholding in the Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge, an incredibly important area for a number of at-risk and endangered species. 

Since 2012, we’ve conserved more than 15,000 acres in South Carolina, and made grants and loans totaling $4 million, which have helped the state’s conservation groups and agencies protect 1,978 additional acres.
