The Seabrook Island Green Space Conservancy (SIGSC) welcomed over 100 enthusiastic supporters on November 3 to celebrate 22 years of preservation and advocacy. Over that time, SIGSC has conserved 42 properties totaling more than 30 acres of land on Seabrook Island.
Conserved properties belong to all Seabrookers and are protected in perpetuity. The most recent property was just added to conserved lands last week. The mission of SIGSC is to facilitate the preservation of substantial green space, habitats for our vast wildlife species and the natural beauty of our island.
These properties are acquired through property and financial donations. In exciting news, Meg Carter, President of SIGSC, announced that these conserved spaces will be marked with permanent signage in the coming months.
In support of this mission, Charley Moore, accomplished photographer, nature lover, and author of Seabrook Island, South Carolina Green Spaces and Wildlife, made a few remarks about the importance of conservation to the Seabrook Island community. For a minimum donation of $250, you can receive a signed copy of the book with a special Green Space insert. For a minimum donation of $100, you can receive two special Green Space Oyster Knives to use at the SIGSC Oyster Roast scheduled for Saturday, March 11, 2023. Donations can be made via our website www.sigsc.net or by mailing a check to SIGSC, 130 Gardeners Circle, PMB 521, Seabrook Island, SC 29455.
