2022 Year in Review – Easements, Events, and More 

As we approach the end of the year, we want to thank you for your continued support of Lowcountry Land Trust. Your investment in our work keeps us on the path toward permanently protecting more land, which directly impacts the quality of our marshes, waterways, forests, and farms, and the long-term enjoyment of unique places found only in South Carolina. As we look ahead to 2023, we’re excited to reflect on what we have achieved with your help.

In 2022, we partnered with landowners and community stakeholders to protect both iconic and discreet places across the Lowcountry:

In 2022, we advanced our mission to connect the local community to conservation:

  • We hosted over 300 area residents at our Annual Spring Gathering at Sheldon Farms. Save the date for 2023 – the event will be on Mar. 25 at Oakland Plantation.
  • To celebrate Earth Day, we teamed up with employees from The Boeing Company for a debris cleanup at the 35 acres surrounding the Angel Oak, owned and managed by Lowcountry Land Trust. 
  • Alongside our community partners, we selected a nationally-recognized landscape architecture firm to bring to life a 10-year initiative to create Angel Oak Preserve on Johns Island. Read more about the future of the passive preserve here.
  • We brought small groups of supporters to Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and the Kiawah River thanks to Coastal Expeditions. 
  • We hosted our annual Sporting Clays Shoot at the permanently protected Brosnan Forest in Dorchester County. Thanks to our partners at Norfolk Southern, we’re excited to announce that the 2023 clays shoot will take place at this magnificent property once again! Make sure to mark your calendars for Oct 28 + 29.
  • Lastly, we raised 118% of our May Giving goal and 174% of our Giving Tuesday goal in November – these efforts will provide us with opportunities to continue connecting the community to conservation.

In 2022, we welcomed new Board Trustees and staff members to Lowcountry Land Trust:

Finally, in 2022, we shared educational blog posts with our audiences in hopes of bringing inspiration and joy into Lowcountry households (below are some of our favorites):

Thanks to your support, we will continue our efforts while striving for new ones in 2023. We hope you see that together we can continue making a difference in achieving a balanced, sustainable future for the Lowcountry.
