Not many things beat a spring evening on historic property along the Cooper River, especially when the evening includes locally sourced foods and 300 friends in conservation. Our Woods and Waters River Shindig was a true celebration of the land we work to protect and the people who so generously support that work.
Since 1992, we’ve protected nearly 35,000 acres through easement and acquisition. Our progress is significant, yet the needs are urgent and ongoing. According to a recent study by the American Farmland Trust, over the last 20 years more than 31 million acres of ag and woodland have been permanently converted to development. At Lord Berkeley Conservation Trust, we embrace a robust economy where conservation of special places is a priority.
That’s where our donors come in. Your gifts to the Woods and Water event including ticket purchases, sponsorships, in kind donations, and financial gifts, totaled more than $45,000. We are humbled by your kindness and look forward to sharing more conservation success stories with you.
