Sporting Clays Shoot In Review

Thank you to everyone who joined us for our Annual Sporting Clays Shoot—attendees, volunteers, and staff alike! We’re grateful to Bill and Linda Demmer, who hosted the event on their breathtaking protected property, White House Plantation, and the Fourth Thursday Shooting Club for setting up and running the course. These events would not be possible without the support of our community and donors. As our first in-person event in over a year, it was refreshing to reconnect with friends, meet new people, and shoot some clays, all in the name of Lowcountry conservation. It was the perfect weekend to celebrate our 35th anniversary, the Lowcountry, and the beautiful landscape we are blessed with. 

Cooler weather and the shortened days have brought busy times for us here at the Land Trust. As we head into the holiday season and prepare for end-of-year easement closings, our staff is hard at work. Particularly, we are gearing up for Giving Tuesday, a global generosity movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities. Join us on Tuesday, November 30th, by making a gift to help us protect more Lowcountry land and water in 2022. 

Additionally, we’re happy to report that our team has grown! This month, Natalie Olson joined LLT staff as the Sea Islands Program Director. We are delighted to have her join our team and excited to introduce her to the LLT community. Natalie is a resident of Johns Island, and a passionate conservationist excited to focus her work on the sea islands she calls home. Please join us in welcoming her! 

As we move into the end of our 35th year, we cannot stress enough how thankful we are for the support we have received. On a daily basis, we are truly amazed by the generosity and support we have received from the Lowcountry community, and we are humbled to steward these precious lands. 

Your biggest fan,
