THE LEGACY OF OUR LAND: THE CONSERVATION OF THE GEORGIA’S COAST
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 15 • 7-8:15 PM (EST)
Our coast is wild and rural, a mecca for people who want to escape beachfronts lined with high-rise condominiums, hotels, and boardwalks. The different world the Georgia and South Carolina coasts have to offer is the result of a strategic effort by generations of conservationists in both states to protect important properties and support the passage of laws and policies that result in habitat protection for wildlife. During this session, moderated by author and biologist J. Drew Lanham, conservationists from both states will discuss the strategy that has gotten us to where we are today, along with the next steps that are needed to preserve a just legacy for generations to come. They’ll address issues of sea-level rise, concerns about equity and inclusion, and many other important issues facing the future of the movement. Panelists include: Ashley Demothesnes of the Lowcountry Open Land Trust and Andrew Schock with The Conservation Fund.
