We are excited to announce that Sam Seawell has been appointed as the new Community Lands Director at Lowcountry Land Trust.
Sam Seawell is a well-known conservationist in the Lowcountry community, having worked with Lowcountry Land Trust for nearly four years serving as a primary point of contact for landowners, stewarding a portfolio of conservation easements, and playing a vital role in the protection of new land.
In his new role as Community Lands Director, Sam will focus on strengthening the community through conservation by enhancing opportunities for all people to access greenspace, water, and working lands; advocating for and facilitating the creation of connectivity corridors between public spaces; and addressing land and water matters identified as community needs by people of color or economically-disadvantaged people, when conservation tools can provide a positive impact.
Prior to working with Lowcountry Land Trust, Sam graduated from The University of the South with a Bachelor of Arts in Environment and Sustainability and worked for several conservation and natural resources organizations throughout the country, such as Georgia-Alabama Land Trust, Trout Unlimited, and the Ucross High Plains Stewardship Initiative.
We are thrilled to have Sam serve as our new Community Lands Director and are confident that he will continue to do an outstanding job overseeing Lowcountry Land Trust’s community conservation initiatives.
