We Believe

We believe that stewardship is home grown. A love for the land is a seed planted in the hearts of those who own and work the land; and those who appreciate rivers and streams, farms and forests, historic places. We believe we have a responsibility to protect our sense of place and we do this by conserving the lifeblood of the the ecosystem of Santee Cooper Country, the farms and forests that surround our waterways. Our work is sustained by those who share our passion. We invite you to join us.
