Black Creek Conservation Strategy

Pee Dee Land Trust, Florence, SC

This project will initiate a long-term process for strategic conservation of high priority lands on Black Creek in Darlington County. To do this, Pee Dee Land Trust will prioritize properties, educate landowners about conservation options, and complete a new conservation easement project.

Counties Impacted:

  • Darlington County SC

​The Black Creek Conservation Strategy is providing valuable information to landowners about conservation options for properties that include significant frontage along Black Creek, a major tributary of the Great Pee Dee River.  This project will build on the strong, historic conservation ethic that has helped preserve and improve water quality in Black Creek, and will generate additional conservation easements in coming years.
