Black River Conservation Corridor: Enhancing Conservation, Habitat Connectivity & Public Access
Funding will support public access, land protection and strategic mapping and planning along the Black River Conservation Corridor. These efforts further initiatives to protect this scenic freshwater coastal plain river and improve public access.
Funding will support the protection of coastal forested wetlands along the Black River as well as the establishment of a kayak launch at the recently protected Rocky Point Community Forest in Georgetown County, SC. By supporting the acquisition of critical land, Duke Energy is helping to enhance quality of life, safeguard water quality, and protect sensitive habitats. In turn, by providing new kayak access to the River’s treasures, support will help increase understanding of the need for the region’s protection.
