Our Mission

Friends of the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy supports the work of the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy to preserve, protect, and promote stewardship of the outstanding natural beauty, ecological vitality, and distinctive cultural resources of the low country and local communities for the inspiration and enjoyment of current and future generations.

About Us

Palmetto Bluff is one of the largest remaining undeveloped coastal areas in the Southeastern United States. The Bluff has been managed for timber, agriculture and wildlife for hundreds of years. Traditional land and wildlife management techniques such as hunting, prescribed burning, wildlife food plots and timber stand improvement have all been employed to maximize the diversity of our landscape. These efforts continue under the management of the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy, even in many areas which are rarely visited, such as conservation areas, nature preserves, interpretive trails, wetlands and pre-development locations.

For many of us who live or spend time here, the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy is at the heart of our love for this special place that is the Bluff. In order to help bridge the gap, and to enable some projects to go forward that have been on hold, "Friends of the Palmetto Bluff Conservancy" has been formed. This group, like many such "friends" groups, will raise money, provide assistance where needed (trail maintenance, envelope stuffing, etc.) and generally serve to support the organization.
