Protecting our Natural Resources: Buffers, Setbacks, & Wildlife Corridors
Grant McClure, South Coast Project Manager for the SC Coastal Conservation League (CCL) will define, differentiate, and talk about the value of buffers and setbacks. Hear about their value for preserving wildlife corridors so that animals can move freely & expand their gene pool (increase fitness, prevent inbreeding depression, etc.) Grant will relate these topics back to CCL’s work at the state and local level (pushing for a baseline setback requirement for the state, encouraging municipalities to adopt buffer requirements in development agreements).

At A Glance


From creature feedings to nature hikes, we’ve got exciting events for the whole family to enjoy.


We are centrally located in Beaufort County, where S.C. 170 crosses the Chechessee River. Just take the right exit from either direction at the bridge.

Field Trips

Fun for all ages, field trips enhance students’ classroom curriculum and gives them a unique understanding of our coastal environment.


Truly the heart of our Foundation, volunteering is the perfect way to learn more about what makes the Sound so important to us.

Ways to Give

Help us make a more profound impact for generations to come, not only for the Sound but for our community too!
