Conserving the Lowcountry
The Open Land Trust protects 28,291 acres in seven counties in South Carolina with 100 conservation easements and 50 fee properties. The Open Land Trust is South Carolina’s first and oldest land trust working to protect open spaces, natural habitats and rural communities throughout the Southern Lowcountry.
Starting with one protected property in 1989, OLT now protects thousands of acres in 7 counties in South Carolina.
OLT purchases property and creates conservation easements to protect our environment and our heritage.
We plan many educational, recreational, and social events and report on our activities and our work.
