THANK YOU to all our friends, supporters, and sponsors who came out on March 12th, before things felt quite so dire, for the Land Trust’s 2020 Annual Meeting!

While practicing elbow-bumps and social-distance measures, we celebrated a memorable year, new conservation easements, our special guests from the SC Conservation Bank, and our special honoree for the Peggy Adams Conservation Award, Rossie Lamar Corwon. 

Hope you enjoy these pictures from Shannon Hill and David Hays.
