We completed our first conservation easements for 2013

We completed our first conservation easements for 2013! On April 19th, A.J. and Carole Johns of Florida granted two conservation easements to LOLT on 1,650 acres of significant wildlife habitat and forestland near the Savannah River in Garnett, SC. The property is located within a conservation landscape known as the South Lowcountry which is generally comprised of land and water between the Savannah and Salkehatchie Rivers. LOLT and its conservation partners are working together to protect working lands, wildlife habitat and critical river corridors to enhance quality of life in the Lowcountry. We are delighted to share this news as the Land Trust surpasses 91,000 acres of total protected land and expect that number to rise steadily throughout the rest of 2013.  Stay tuned for more great news!
