FROM THE DIRECTOR

WHAT A DIFFERENCE DESIGN MAKES:

CHARLESTON VS. CANE BAY he term “design” has an insubstantial quality about it. You draw designs on a notepad in a boring meeting. People who want to make a splash at the Academy Awards wear designer clothes. “Intelligent” design is not really intelligent. Urban design could convey the same lack of seriousness – street trees, a fountain in the park, banners hanging from period lamp posts – all nice but not essential. The Coastal Conservation League’s view, which we’ve promoted for the past 25 years, is exactly the opposite. Urban design will determine whether cities survive and flourish or sink under an unbearable weight of expense, traffic congestion and pollution. Unfortunately – even catastrophically – local governments, and specifically local planning departments and planning commissions, often times don’t understand or apply even the simplest principles necessary to ensure that development is functional, sustainable, and inspiring. Let’s start with the most basic and, arguably, the most important design element – the street system. As long as cities have existed on this earth, they have had some version of a street grid. This is not just a convention. It is a functional necessity because a grid of streets is demonstrably the most efficient organizational pattern for urban settlement. Getting from home to school, from the office to the store, from city hall to the gym, or virtually any point A to any point B, can be done more quickly, in a shorter distance, on foot, bicycle, bus, or car, on a grid. This is a geometric fact. Grids vary across the world, from Hong Kong to Athens, from London to San Francisco, from Beaufort to Savannah. But the unifying principle is that each has a dense, connected network of streets made up of small blocks. Traffic distributes itself across the grid, minimizing congestion. When land uses are blended together, as they are in all traditional cities and towns, it is possible to get around on foot or on a bicycle, because travel distances are short. To the right are two examples: Charleston and Beaufort.

“All of this adds up to an entirely predictable future for this part of the region – massive gridlock, a constant clamor for wider roads, calls for higher taxes to build and maintain those roads, chronically unsafe conditions for bicyclists and pedestrians, and minimal potential for any form of public transit serving the residents.” 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17

Around the 1950s, this pattern began to break down, due to the increasing dominance of the automobile and the false impression that distance was no longer a critical factor in transportation. Blocks lengthened and even disappeared among new road layouts that were designed exclusively to accommodate cars. Zoning codes rigidly separated different land uses, placing stores, offices, and even schools miles from homes. By the 1980s, with an exponential increase in traffic congestion and an ever-increasing demand for more and wider roads, some planners began to realize the catastrophic mistake of abandoning the grid. Ironically, even cities with internationally acclaimed, historic downtowns built on traditional street grids – Charleston being a case in point – failed to incorporate connected streets into new development. The results are evident every morning and every evening as traffic creeps along major highways nationwide – like I-26 and Folly Road in Charleston and Highway 278 in Bluffton, turning commutes that would ordinarily take 15 minutes into hour-long ordeals. There is no secret to the formula for an efficient street system. It all comes down to “block density,” or the number of blocks per square mile. Charleston, below the Crosstown Expressway, is about 2.8 square miles. It contains roughly 320 city blocks. So there are approximately 114 blocks per square mile.

Hovnanian’s Four Seasons

On the other end of the spectrum, Cane Bay is emerging in Berkeley County along Highway 176. At completion this 4,500-acre project is projected to have 10,000 houses and 195 acres of commercial development. The first phase is roughly 1.5 square miles. As you can see in the image above, it is difficult even to determine exactly what a block is in Cane Bay, but a generous count would be 25 total blocks. This adds up to a block density of about 17 per square mile, or about 1/7 that of Charleston. To make matters worse, uses are rigidly separated. This means that every trip must be taken in a car. This disaster-in-the-making is also entirely avoidable. Changing the pattern of new development to reflect the efficiencies of traditional towns is comparatively easy … compared to, say, fixing the educational system in America or dealing with crime and unemployment. Local governments should require that all new development meet basic design standards with functional road systems that – like Charleston’s, Beaufort’s, and Georgetown’s – will support the needs of citizens for centuries into the future. Now is the time to turn the corner on development by acknowledging and institutionalizing the critical importance of design for the future of the coast.


or the last 25 years, the Conservation League has been the leading voice representing the public interest on Lowcountry environmental issues. In collaboration with communities along the coast, the Conservation League has held developers and legislators accountable for actions that impact the environment. Unfortunately, special interests are using our success to justify one of the biggest attacks on environmental regulatory protections in recent history. The roster of regulatory bills in the state legislature this session, which extends through next year, is aimed almost exclusively at absolving industries and developers from public accountability for the environmental consequences of their actions.

F

Holding Polluters Accountable Case in point: Senate bill S.229, dubbed by conservationists as the “Polluter Amnesty Bill,” would weaken the Pollution Control Act by removing citizens’ rights to legally contest unpermitted, past pollution. This legislation would further prohibit the ability of affected communities to hold polluting entities accountable and would provide amnesty from legal recourse for past pollution, as in the case of leaking coal ash ponds and radioactive waste pools.

LET THE PEOPLE

SPEAK

PROTECTING THE AUTOMATIC STAY

istockphoto.com

Next on the docket is S.165, an attack on the “automatic stay,” which is a legal mechanism intended to prevent irreversible and permanent damage to our state’s natural resources. The automatic stay temporarily halts work on a contested project until the Administrative Law Court has heard all of the facts and analyzed the situation to ensure that the initial decision to issue a permit was well-founded and in keeping with state law. Without the automatic stay, destruction can take place unabated until legal proceedings are complete. The automatic stay has prevented great harm in the past, including helping to save Angel Oak on Johns Island. Developers had planned high-density apartment buildings and businesses surrounding Angel Oak, a live oak tree that is thought to be several hundred years old. The Conservation League and Save the Angel Oak challenged the permits issued to fill wetlands where the development was to occur. The automatic stay ensured that development and construction stopped, preventing irreparable harm to the beloved oak. The delay also allowed time to negotiate a settlement to safeguard the long-term health of Angel Oak and by permanently protecting 36 acres surrounding the ancient tree.

There was a momentary bright spot this legislative session when Representative Bill Herbkersman and Senator Ray Cleary introduced two bills, House bill H.3378 and Senate bill S.139. The legislation was designed to implement the recommendations of DHEC’s Blue Ribbon Committee on Shoreline Management (BRC), The BRC was tasked with reviewing South Carolina’s landmark Beachfront Management Act and recommending regulations to help guide the stewardship of beachfront and estuarine shorelines. Unfortunately, upon introduction of these bills, out-of-state developers pressured a handful of influential legislators into supporting an amendment that would completely undermine the legislation by delaying setting the shoreline baseline recommendation until far into the future. That amendment is squarely aimed at allowing sufficient time to pass for sand to accrete on the fragile sliver of land on Kiawah Island known as Captain Sams Spit, facilitating the construction of a road across the narrow “neck” of the spit.

KEEPING THE COASTAL ZONE IN TACT

Kiawah developers are not alone in their pursuit of regulatory exemption. S.522, a bill threatening to eliminate Coastal Zone Management Program (CZM) protections for approximately 90 percent of Dorchester County, was also introduced this session.

STANDING UP FOR CAPTAIn SAMS SPIT

South Carolina Conservation Coalition Lobby Day on April 15, 2015. has the authority to review state and federal permit applications in the coastal zone to balance economic development with coastal protections. Dorchester County wants to remove almost all of their county from the coastal zone designation, presumably to enable development that would extensively damage wetlands.

ENSURING CHECKS AND BALANCES at DHEC Lastly, S.228 is a bill that aims to remove the ability of the board of the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) to challenge staff decisions. Instead, permit appeals would go straight to the Administrative Law Court. This bill will significantly increase legal expenses for all parties by eliminating the DHEC Board’s ability to informally resolve disputes. Eliminating this system of “checks and balances” at DHEC will lead to environmentally devastating decisions. The Conservation League and our allies are opposing these legislative threats that would strip citizens of their right to oppose unsound environmental degradation. On April 15th, more than one hundred supporters arrived in Columbia wearing “I Love the Coast” stickers for the annual Conservation Lobby Day. Supporters spent the day talking to their legislators about the importance of standing up for our state’s natural resources. Because many of the bills referenced above face substantial opposition, we are hopeful that they will not pass this year. The Conservation League and its community and conservation partners will continue to work diligently and strategically in defense of citizen involvement on behalf of the environment.

FOR CHARLESTON:

PRIORITIES FOR THE NEXT MAYORAL ADMINISTRATION

I

n 2015 the city of Charleston will elect its first new mayor in four decades. Earlier this year, the Coastal Conservation League joined forces IfYouWereMayor.com, Charleston Moves, Historic Charleston Foundation, and the South Carolina Community Loan Fund to host a forum at the Francis Marion Hotel to discuss the future of city. The event was generously sponsored by John Winthrop. Rather than invite the mayoral candidates to speak about their own platforms, the candidates were invited to listen and share ideas as members of the audience. If You Were Mayor co-founder Whitney Powers emceed the forum. Charlie Smith spoke first. He addressed the challenges that West Ashley faces and spoke about the need to reconnect the neighborhoods and to involve the residents of West Ashley in planning its own future. Kurt Cavanaugh, Charleston Moves’ executive director, spoke about the need to make Charleston safe for everyone, including those who travel by foot and by bicycle. Winslow Hastie of the Historic Charleston Foun-

dation used the metaphor of sausage-making to explain the challenges that lie ahead for the next mayor. It isn’t sexy, he said, but it’s time for Charleston to roll up its sleeves and implement community plans that already exist – the Green Plan, the Century V Plan, Gabe Klein’s Peninsula Mobility Report, and the 2015 Tourism Management Plan; in other words, make the “sausage.” Michelle Mapp of the South Carolina Community Loan Fund began her presentation by sharing the story of Jordan, a little girl growing up in a dilapidated Charleston neighborhood called Silver Hill. She talked about the disconnect between the Charleston we show the world and the Charleston that is home to Jordan. She spoke of the urgent need to create economic development opportunities for low-income residents. Next, Conservation League Program Manager Myles Maland discussed coastal resiliency, or how to prepare and adapt to the challenges that arise as a result of climate change. Increased flooding, for example, is already posing infrastructure dilemmas in Charleston. I’On developer Vince Graham spoke about how accommodating the automobile became the number

one policy of the federal government and changed the way that communities were designed in the 20th century. (See Dana Beach’s column in this issue.) Landscape architect Steve Dudash followed Graham and shared innovative and exciting alternate modes of mass transit, including light rail and bus rapid transit. Amy Fabri concluded the presentations with a discussion about James Island. She likened James Island to a child of three adults – the City of Charleston (“Dad”), the Town of James Island (“Mom”) and Charleston County (“Stepdad”) – all of whom have plans for James Island. She spoke about the need for cooperation among these “adults” in charting James Island’s future. The event sold out and was an overwhelming success. The discussion was constructive and optimistic, and most of the candidates for mayor were in attendance. To watch full video footage of the event, visit coastalconservationleague.org/ forum/.

nsung heroes. That’s how HarrietWilliams describes Victor and Marjorie Morawetz, philanthropists from the first half of the twentieth century whose gifts to the Lowcountry live on today. Williams seeks to honor the Morawetzes’ legacy, ensuring that future generations can appreciate their many contributions to the Charleston area. Recently Williams made a generous gift to the Coastal Conservation League in memory of Victor and Marjorie Morawetz. “When I sold my house at 1 Tradd Street, I wanted to be sure that one-third of the proceeds stayed in Charleston,” Williams explained about her decision to give to the Conservation League. “It is because Charleston has prospered and grown that the house had a high value.” “I have a lot of admiration for Dana Beach,” she says about the Conservation League’s executive director. “He’s pugnacious enough to keep going and keep protecting more special places.”

SUMMERS AT SEABROOK The Morawetzes were concerned that Seabrook would be sold and all of the trees clear-cut for timber, says Williams, so they bought the majority of the island in an effort to preserve its natural beauty. The Morawetzes invited Williams and her family to stay at Seabrook during the summers because Williams’ mother suffered from hay fever induced by ragweed. Seabrook had no ragweed, an allergen for which there was no treatment at the time. During those summers, Seabrook was completely undeveloped with the exception of the hunt club and a few shacks. “The hunt club was so large that they played badminton matches in the central room,” remembers Williams. The island had no electricity, and with no grocery stores nearby, Williams and her family and friends often feasted on fresh seafood they caught themselves. “Wearing our ancient crabbing shoes and oldest clothes, at low tide each day we ventured into Captain Sams Creek and caught shrimp and crab. The tide table was our bible,” says Williams. “Those were wonderful summer experiences. The Morawetzes were very special people.”

ictor Morawetz was one of the highest profile corporate attorneys of the early 20th century. A Baltimore native, Morawetz built his practice in New York City. Among his clients were numerous railroads, J.P. Morgan & Company, and U.S. Steel. He authored many influential legal texts, including the foremost treatise on corporate law at the time. He was frequently quoted on legal matters in the New York Times, perhaps most famously for his opposition to the 16th Amendment, which established the authority of Congress to levy a federal income tax. Though the Morawetzes aren’t household names in the Lowcountry today, the fruits of their generosity remain all around us. In the 1920s and 30s, Marjorie and Victor Morawetz purchased Seabrook Island, Fenwick Hall Plantation on Johns Island, and Charleston’s socalled “Pink House” at 17 Chalmers Street, among other properties. Victor Morawetz hired renowned Charleston architect Albert Simons, of the firm Simons and Lapham, to restore Fenwick Hall and the Pink House. Simons was Harriet Williams’ father.

SAVING FENWICK HALL Driving down Maybank Highway toward Johns Island, one can’t miss the majestic magnolia trees lining the road by the municipal golf course. Those trees were planted by Victor Morawetz during the restoration of Fenwick Hall. An early Georgian two-story brick plantation house, Fenwick Hall was built around 1717 by John Fenwick, a member of one of the Lowcountry’s most colorful families. The estate sits on the eastern end of Johns Island, across the Stono River from James Island, between the present-day River Road and Penneys Creek. During the American Revolution, Fenwick Hall was occupied and served as a headquarters for the British army. The estate is sometimes still referred to as Headquarters House. Victor and Marjorie Morawetz bought and restored Fenwick Hall in the 1930s, saving it from ruin. Fenwick Hall still stands on Johns Island today. RESTORING THE PINK HOUSE Built within the walled city of Charles Towne in the mid 1690s, the little pink building at 17 Chalmers Street is the oldest stone house in the city. It is built of “Bermuda stone,” which has a natural salmon hue. Once a watering hole frequented by rowdy sailors visiting the Port of Charleston from all over the world, the Pink House – like Fenwick Hall – had fallen into disrepair by the beginning of the 20th century. Victor and Marjorie Morawetz purchased the

12

C O A S T A L C O N S E R VA T I O N L E A G U E | S P R I N G 2 0 1 5

building in the 1930s and worked with Albert Simons on extensive renovations. The building was used as a venue for entertaining guests. The Morawetzes added a small wing for caterers to use in hosting events. The Pink House has been used as an art gallery in recent years but is currently closed to the public. A LASTING LEGACY Victor Morawetz died in 1938. In a codicil to his will, he stipulated that Seabrook Island should be “…a park and recreation ground and health resort for such of the public as may be in need thereof…so much of the beach as can advantageously be used for healthful recreation of boys of the State of South Carolina shall always be set apart for that purpose.” Marjorie Morawetz lived 20 more years, frequently visiting the Lowcountry. Upon her death in 1957, she bequeathed more than 1,200 acres of Seabrook Island to the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina with the condition that the island’s natural beauty be maintained. In 1970, the Diocese sold the majority of Seabrook Island to a developer named William Whitner for $1.9 million. Two hundred and six acres of high land were reserved for an Episcopal camp and conference center, known today as Camp St. Christopher. At the time of Marjorie Morawetz’s death, the editorial board of the Charleston Evening Post wrote: “Mr. and Mrs. Morawetz were the soul of generosity in many public benefactions, here and elsewhere. … Even in their death their good works will go on.”

Finding Common Ground to Expand Solar Energy in South Carolina by Hamilton Davis

Under the settlement, residential and commercial utility customers that install solar panels on their rooftops before 2021 will receive full retail credit for any excess power that flows back onto the electric grid and will be eligible to remain on this rate until December 31, 2025 without any solar specific charges or fees. and commercial utility customers that install solar panels on their rooftops before 2021 will receive full retail credit for any excess power that flows back onto the electric grid and will be eligible to remain on this rate until December 31, 2025 without any solar specific charges or fees. The settlement also establishes a methodology for valuing solar power for purposes of utility recovery of lost revenues, if any, which will be recoverable by the utilities through distributed energy resource programs that were authorized by Act 236. In 2020 the Public Service Commission will reevaluate the solar policies included in the settlement and will consider any appropriate changes at that time. Full implementation of Act 236 is expected by this summer and will enable even South Carolinians of modest means to access solar energy. Distributed energy resources like solar are expected to enhance grid security, increase consumer independence, promote market competition, and reduce health costs from pollution.

Richard Beck

igned into law by Governor Haley in 2014, Act 236 is a consensus bill developed by electric cooperatives, investor-owned utilities, solar power proponents, and conservationists to open the way for more distributed energy production in South Carolina. Taken together, the bill’s key provisions – giving customers the freedom to lease solar, permitting utilities to introduce distributed energy programs, and ensuring equitable net metering rules – are complementary approaches that will expand customer options and increase cost-effective renewable power in South Carolina. In December utilities, solar businesses, and conservation groups reached a settlement agreement on updated net energy metering rules for Duke Energy and SCE&G. The settlement agreement, which has been filed with the South Carolina Public Service Commission, is a critical step forward in implementing Act 236. Although this issue has given rise to extensive controversy between solar supporters and utilities across the country, South Carolina stakeholders have once again been able to find common ground in efforts to expand solar energy opportunities for businesses and homeowners. Rooftop solar panels produce power that is used by a home or business, but they can also push electricity back onto the grid to be used by other utility customers. Net energy metering is the term used for crediting that excess solar power at the retail electricity rate. Under the settlement, residential

THE CASE FOR COMPROMISE:

DEEPENING THE CHARLESTON HARBOR The Coastal Conservation League, Lowcountry Open Land Trust, and the Southern Environmental Law Center announce an historic compromise with the South Carolina State Ports Authority (SCSPA) regarding the deepening the Charleston Harbor. The agreement includes a $5.1 million investment in the conservation of the Cooper River Corridor by the SCSPA and ensures the timely progress forward of harbor deepening. The compromise was approved by the Joint Bond Review Committee in

he deepening of Charleston Harbor represents an important economic opportunity for South Carolina. A wider Panama Canal will mean larger ships with deeper drafts calling on Charleston in a few years. Even now, large ships traversing the Suez Canal from Asia are calling on East Coast ports in greater numbers. These larger ships require a deeper channel. At the same time, Charleston Harbor is a resource of unparalleled importance to our community – historically, culturally and environmentally. We agree that the deepening must not compromise this irreplaceable asset. Gaining approval for the project requires obtaining a variety of federal and state environmental permits and certifications. When the South Carolina State Ports Authority (SPA) initiated the permitting process in 2011, the estimated completion date was not until 2024. Although the Coastal Conservation League agrees that the project analysis should be comprehensive and scrupulously rigorous, we felt that the time frame was longer than necessary. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the agency responsible for the federal permitting, worked with the SPA and in 2012 agreed to a streamlined procedure, shortening the process by approximately five years. This flexibility by the Corps is admirable. We are confident that the review will not be compromised by the accelerated schedule. The expedited process is still quite demanding. One central requirement is mitigation for negative impacts to water quality and wetlands. This is often a sticking point for large projects like the deepening. It is difficult to identify and gain agreement for mitigation strategies that truly reduce project impacts in a meaningful way. Further, there are other critical and potentially controversial issues to address and resolve, such as the suspension of toxic contaminants in the water column. After extensive discussion among our conservation partners, we believed that it would be best to identify these concerns as soon as possible, and that the Conservation League and the Southern Environmental Law Center should develop a set of recommendations that could move the project forward. The alternative would have been to follow the timeline of the permitting process, delaying this analysis for a couple of years. This would have reduced the time available to come to agreement on permit conditions, potentially setting the stage

Rural Resurgence or centuries, agriculture has played a vital role in South Carolina’s economic and cultural history. South Carolina once ranked among the wealthiest states in America based on its agricultural success. But the legacy of agriculture has been both grand and tragic. The slave-based plantation system was indefensible and unsustainable. Today, the oncelucrative model of industrial-scale, single-crop export agriculture – such as that employed by the

18th and 19th century rice planters – has failed to deliver prosperity, or even basic subsistence, to much of rural South Carolina. But the land and the people remain. South Carolina has more than four million acres of farmland, a long growing season, an ample supply of water, and a history of agricultural performance. Moreover, a powerful cultural change is transforming American agriculture. Nationwide, demand for local and heritage food products is increasing, and South Carolina is no exception. Currently, the appetite for locally grown food far outstrips the state’s present level of production. As is the case across the United States, the growing market for all things local is reconstituting South Carolina’s food system and rural economy.

Chefs from local restaurants prepare dishes using Charleston Gold rice at the GrowFood Carolina warehouse on February 6, 2015.

A New Grain for the 21st Century In 2011, Charleston Gold rice — a hearty, aromatic, short-stemmed hybrid of the world-famous Carolina Gold rice — was approved for cultivation. Developed by Dr. Merle Shepard, Dr. Gurdev Khush and Dr. Anna McClung over the course of twenty-three years, Charleston Gold has quickly become a favorite among local growers and a staple of Lowcountry restaurants and kitchens. Dr. Shepard, Professor Emeritus of Entomology at Clemson University

and a trustee of the Carolina Gold Rice Foundation, explains the evolution of Charleston Gold: “This could never have happened without the efforts of a lot of very talented (and persistent) people — beginning with the inception of the idea, on to discussions with Dr. Khush, the rice breeder at the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines, who made the crosses and sent me the 25 accessions to move through quarantine to the field, each year selecting only the best genotypes. “Another essential step in the process was the work of Dr. McClung, U.S. Department of Agricul-


“Of course, none of this would have gone anywhere without the work of the rice farmers who put the new seed variety out on the landscape.” -Dr. Merle Shepard Campbell Coxe, the first, real modern-day rice farmer in South Carolina who has expanded his production and continues to provide excellent quality Charleston Gold to the marketplace; and Jimmy Hagood, who also grows and markets Charleston Gold and continues to enlarge his operation at Lavington Plantation. “Jimmy Hagood uses a wonderful analogy, referring to Charleston Gold as the ‘little sister’ of Carolina Gold. The attributes (besides the wonderful taste) that make Charleston Gold stand out include: 1. Yields that are nearly double those of Carolina Gold; 2. Shorter plants that are less likely to ‘lodge’ or fall down in rain and wind; 3. Faster maturation rates, and 4. Resistance to disease. “Credit also goes to food writers Hanna Raskin, Teresa Taylor, Nathalie Dupree and Marion Sullivan for helping to increase awareness of Charleston Gold and its fabulous flavor. Finally, we are indebted to the GrowFood Carolina team and their warehouse. They have done so much to move Charleston Gold and other local and heirloom farm products to market. Keep up the great work!”

WHY I SUPPORT THE COASTAL CONSERVATION LEAGUE by Nick Ceva 7th Grader, Cario Middle School

ur vision for the Charleston area is a future in which our population is healthy and active and has access to clean air and water and a strong and thriving local economy. We have taken giant steps in this direction and we will get there with your help.” This vision began for Coastal Conservation League in 1989 when they opened their headquarters in Charleston. I feel that the Lowcountry community will benefit most from 7th graders at Thomas Cario Middle School supporting Coastal Conservation League because they are working to make Charleston a healthier place to live, and they do this through the various programs they have in place, and citizens can help by volunteering and becoming a member. Coastal Conservation League is working to make Charleston a healthier place to live. CCL is helping to make our air and water cleaner by campaigning for the use of trains instead of diesel trucks and working to convince the shipping industry to use cleaner fuels in their ships and tugs. They are also monitoring all air and water discharge permits along the coast and questioning permits that would result in harm to the environment. Charleston County received a “C” rating from the American Lung Association due to its harmful particulate and ozone levels. This shows how important it is for us to support CCL in their efforts to clean up our environment. Coastal Conservation League has various programs in place to improve the health of our environment. They have five main programs and they are: Air, Water and Public Health, Energy and Climate, Land and Communities, Legislative and Sustainable Agriculture. The first program, Air, Water and Public Health, focuses on working with power plants and to reduce air and water pollution. “Our advocacy brings attention to the latest scientific and medical research on air/ water pollution and public health issues.” The second program, Energy and Climate, focuses on finding ways to take advantage of home-grown, renewable energy and our state’s offshore wind potential. “Aggressive energy efficiency measures can signficalty reduce

of investment opportunity within local economies.” The third program, Land and Communities, focuses on controlling growth by offering ways to create new developments that reduce automobile use and land consumption by placing them near or in existing urban areas. “From restructuring zoning codes to rerouting


FIND THE FORK! highways, we provide technical, professional and other assistance to residents of the region to help them preserve the South Carolina coast.” The fourth program focuses on working with other conservation organizations and the public to push for legislation that protects our environment. CCL has office staff in Columbia so they can immediately respond to the growing number of bills that affect the quality of life in our coastal community. “CCL provides the information so citizens can communicate effectively with their individual representatives in the House and Senate.” All of these programs help CCL work toward their vision for the Lowcountry. The way 7th graders at Thomas Cario Middle School can help support CCL are by volunteering, becoming a member and making a donation. “Get involved by joining our e-activist list and our social media groups to find out about upcoming events, news stories, volunteer opportunities, and to receive updates on Conservation legislation.” 7th graders at Thomas Cario Middle School can also become involved by sending letters to elected officials to support CCL’s push for legislation that protects our creeks, marshes, water quality, and wildlife habitat. By joining CCL and making a donation, 7th graders at Thomas Cario Middle School are becoming part of a group that will make a difference in the Lowcountry’s future. I predict that in the years to come, Coastal Conservation League will have reduced the demand for energy and we will have less air pollution. As students, we can show our support of CCL by following them on social media to find out about volunteer opportunities, and support their conservation efforts by sending letters to elected officials to push for a change in legislation. Finally, to make a difference everyday, you can shop and buy from local stores and eat at restaurants that use local produce. Also, buying from local farmers at our farmers markets supports sustainable agriculture and this benefits our community, the environment and local economy.
