his spring and summer, the conservation community lost three irrepressible leaders. All were dedicated conservationists, but they were different in so many ways. One was a staunch Democrat, another a loyal Republican and the third politically independent. Two were raised in the South, while one was a New Yorker. One was a farmer, one a social worker and one a journalist-turnedprofessional environmentalist. Far more important than their differences, though, was their shared concern for the future of the Lowcountry and their steadfast belief that they could prevail over the forces that threatened it. Jane Lareau, Billie Houghton and Diane Terni were all instrumental in the evolution of the Conservation League. Jane and I opened the doors of the League at 456 King Street one week before Hurricane Hugo ravaged the Lowcountry. For the next 20 years, Jane rallied citizens against enormous, region-changing threats and in support of new protections for land and water – defeating a new interstate, I-73, through Georgetown, McClellanville and Mt. Pleasant; preventing the desecration of Sparkleberry Swamp (featured on the cover of this newsletter) by a “bridge from nowhere to nowhere;” shepherding the revision of the Francis Marion National Forest management plan to restore the longleaf pine ecosystem, and much more. Jane was unfiltered, providing the raw energy and optimism necessary for a community to take control of its destiny. Billie served on our board during one of our most formative periods, as we opened an office in Georgetown and hired a legislative staff in Columbia, making it possible to take on initiatives that would have previously been overwhelming. She was generous and thoughtful, kind and passionate. To the extent that she was inspired by the battle to protect the Lowcountry environment, she inspired in us the confidence to take on the biggest challenges without reservation. During her tenure, we passed the strongest factory hog regulations in the country and protected Sandy Island, which today stand as two of our proudest achievements. Diane was one of our most generous supporters and a committed farmer. She had a particular interest in protecting the farms and forests of the Lowcountry from the sprawl of resort and suburban development. Closest to her home at Brewton in Beaufort County was the battle to prevent the destruction of Binden Plantation on the Pocotaglio River. It lasted almost five years – from the time the property was annexed into the town of Yemassee, which we challenged in a series of lawsuits, through the bankruptcy of the developer and subsequent donation of a conservation easement to the Beaufort Open Land Trust. Diane also fundamentally understood that protecting the Lowcountry landscape meant strengthening the farming economy. Through support from the Ceres Foundation, she made GrowFood Carolina a reality. We will miss these strong, courageous women; but the conservation victories they enabled remain as lasting legacies.

25th Anniversary

Prosperous Lowcountry, Flourishing Planet n the heels of our 25th Anniversary Conference, “Prosperous Lowcountry, Flourishing Planet,” we continue to remain motivated to play a positive role in sustaining the landscapes that surround us. Prosperous Lowcountry, Flourishing Planet convened many of the brightest minds in the country to focus on the particular threats facing the Lowcountry, and examined our role and responsibility for addressing the environmental challenges that confront us. We invite you to consider some of the ideas that emerged from the conference, along with their implications for our work over the coming decades – to protect the environment, to build a region that is economically and ecologically sustainable, and to preserve the Lowcountry’s rich culture and quality of life.

John's Island

Angel Oak Forever “Consider a tree, no matter how noble, standing immobile, unable to move but aware ...What must it be like, branching outwards symmetrically, growing always toward the light, unable to flee but knowing – somehow, in the very bracts and chloroplasts of your being – that there is always the threat or the potential of something else, a death and transfiguration...” – invocation for the Noble Tree Foundation, given in 2005 by Benjamin Bernard Dunlap, President of Wofford College

he venerable Angel Oak stands guarded by a small city park and a modest chain link fence – its only defense against the steamroll of a speculative real estate market. Today, this centuries-old, sea island icon will be forever protected, thanks to the vision and passion of dedicated individuals, the power of the law, and a unified and inspired community. In 2005, a development was proposed on a tract of land at the intersection of Maybank Highway and Bohicket Road, adjacent to the Angel Oak. Initially designed for dense residential development and big box retail, the development as planned was roughly equivalent to the density of downtown Charleston, fifteen times greater than what is allowed for the most concentrated areas of John’s Island. Simply put, it was completely inappropriate.

T

More Than a Tree Dubbed Angel Oak Village, the development was problematic not only for the Angel Oak tree, but also for the surrounding ecology and character of John’s Island. The majority of onsite trees were slated for removal and the land was to be almost completely covered with pavement and apartment buildings. To prepare the site for construction, the developer planned to fill wetlands connected to Church Creek. All of these activities would lead to substantial increases in nonpoint source runoff and do irreparable harm to the site’s wetlands and nearby creeks. Classified as shellfish harvesting waters, Church Creek is protected by law for shellfish harvesting, recreation, crabbing and fishing. But Church Creek is also listed by the Department of Health as an impaired waterway because current levels of stormwater runoff are contributing to high fecal coliform bacteria and low dissolved oxygen levels. Furthermore, Church Creek connects to Bohicket Creek and other smaller tidal creeks, waters that are favored by local fishermen and relied upon by the surrounding community. The Coastal Conservation League expressed serious concerns about such a dense development immediately adjacent to the Angel Oak, Church Creek and the Charleston County Urban Growth Boundary. In 2008, the City of Charleston approved the development, which was revised to eliminate the big box component, add a six-acre conservation zone, reduce some wetland fill and slightly increase the buffer around Angel Oak. Despite these changes, the development was still incompatible with the unique

natural and cultural history of John’s Island.

Time to Act About this time, John’s Island residents Samantha Siegel and Lorna Hattler became alarmed at the prospect of the ancient tree they had come to love being engulfed by an apartment complex. They started a petition drive, garnering more than 12,000 signatures, and founded a nonprofit called Save the Angel Oak. In 2009, they teamed up with the Conservation League to engage forest ecologist Dr. Jean Everett and wetland delineation expert Bridget Lussier to review the site and the impacts of the projected development. The two scientists submitted their reports to the Army Corps of Engineers. At the same time, the League began floating the idea of a conservation purchase and commissioned an appraisal of the property. The following year, the Corps ruled that the wetlands fell under federal jurisdiction, which mandated that the developer secure a permit to fill them. Then the League formally approached the developer about selling the Phase II portion of his land as green space, contingent on the community raising the money to purchase the site. Though the developer ignored the offer, the League continued to promote the concept of the Phase II tract becoming an expanded public park area – to protect the historic Angel Oak and its surrounding landscape, teach visitors about Gullah Geechee history and culture, and highlight sea island contributions to the nation’s civil rights movement.


John's Island

Dana Beach

In 2011, the developer received permits approving his stormwater pollution prevention plan and his request to fill wetlands on the Phase I tract. The League and Save the Angel Oak, represented by the South Carolina Environmental Law Project, submitted comments objecting to the permit and entered into litigation to appeal its issuance. During the course of the appeal of the permit, the developer foreclosed on the property. His lender, the Coastal Federal Credit Union, gained control of what was now a 36-acre property comprising Phase I and Phase II. (The City of Charleston had previously purchased the developer’s six-acre conservation zone to add to the two-acre city park surrounding the tree.)

Safe At Last After extensive negotiations with the Coastal Federal Credit Union, the

Conservation League agreed to drop their appeal of the Phase I permits in exchange for a new appraisal of the Phase II property and an option for the Lowcountry Open Land Trust to buy it. A settlement was finalized in early 2013, which succeeded in adding more acreage in the option to purchase. The Land Trust immediately went to work to raise the $3.6 million necessary to purchase the Phase II tract. They secured two 90-day options to allow enough time for a community fundraising campaign. Next they developed a multi-faceted park and preservation plan for the property, re-naming it Angel Oak Preserve and enlisting the Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission as a partner. On July 16th, the Land Trust was awarded a $2.4 million grant from the Charleston County Greenbelt Fund for the purchase of the property. That C OA S TA L C O N S E RVAT I O N L E AG U E

left $1.2 million to be raised over the remainder of the summer and fall. Thousands of sea islanders, Charlestonians and friends from around the world responded. Local municipalities, businesses and corporations made significant contributions. Community nonprofits and foundations also donated. Combined gifts flowed in at a rate of $8,000 to $10,000 a day. By the end of October, $750,000 had been collected. Then on November 6th, the S.C. Conservation Bank approved a grant of $890,000 toward the project, lifting the Angel Oak campaign over and above its goal. More than $4 million was raised, enough money to cover the purchase of Phase II, the design of the preserve, and possible acquisition of more acreage. The dream of an Angel Oak Preserve would be realized.


Energy & Climate “

Energy Advances

I

t was a busy summer for the Coastal Conservation League’s Energy and Climate Program as issues ranging from solar power to offshore wind to energy efficiency were front and center before regulators and policy makers in South Carolina. Looking forward to 2014, we expect to continue our advocacy work before the state legislature and utility regulators on behalf of clean energy resources.

by Hamilton Davis, Energy & Climate Director

Efficiency In August, the Conservation League partnered with the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy, the Natural Resources Defense Council, and the Sierra Club to reach a settlement agreement with Duke Energy Carolinas, the North Carolina Public Staff, the Environmental Defense Fund, and the North Carolina Sustainable Energy Association regarding Duke Energy’s energy efficiency portfolio and regulatory mechanism. The N.C. Utilities Commission approved the agreement in October. A parallel proceeding is also underway in South Carolina, and a settlement agreement involving the League has been filed with the S.C. Public Service Commission for their approval. The decision affirms the N.C. Utilities Commission’s recognition of the role that utility efficiency programs play in helping customers cut their energy costs and in keeping electric rates as low as possible. It also positions Duke Energy to build on its success in rolling out cost-effective efficiency measures. The new “shared savings” regulatory mechanism ensures that almost 90 percent of the financial benefits of energy savings from efficiency programs will go to customers, and the remainder will serve as a shareholder reward for Duke’s program implementation achievements. This means that Duke’s shareholder earnings will grow when it achieves more energy savings. The new mechanism also provides for a bonus shareholder incentive if Duke meets an aggressive but realistic goal of one percent annual energy savings. This bonus incentive provides additional motivation for Duke to strive to reach the savings targets established in the 2011 DukeProgress merger settlement, to which the Conservation League was a party. In sum, the settlement and the N.C. Utilities Commission’s approval have paved the way for Duke Energy to enable households and businesses to save energy, save money and reduce the environmental impacts of local power systems.

Offshore Wind Charleston played host to the Southeastern Coastal Wind Conference in September. This gathering of regional stakeholders called on utilities, wind developers, environmental advocates, investors and others to discuss the economic development and clean energy opportunities that offshore wind presents for South Carolina and the Southeast. I was honored to moderate the conference’s opening panel discussion of regional offshore wind potential. A researcher from Clemson University’s Strom Thurmond Institute presented results from a 2012 study that if South Carolina developed 1,000 megawatts of its substantial offshore wind resource, the state could expect to generate $2 billion in wages, $3.7 billion in economic output, and $616 million in government revenue over a decade. Net Metering Customer-owned solar power is becoming increasingly competitive with utility electricity rates in South Carolina. Although our state has some of the more punitive solar policies in the country, an opportunity to improve solar access in South Carolina is now being considered by the S.C. Public Service Commission as they review the state’s current net metering regulations. The Conservation League has officially intervened in this docket and is organizing stakeholder support for needed improvements to regulations that are limiting the investment options of businesses and homeowners as they consider the transition to solar power.

Waccamaw River

Santee Cooper to Remove Coal Ash from the Banks of the Waccamaw Dana Beach

I

n a groundbreaking settlement with conservation groups, Santee Cooper has agreed to remove 1.3 million tons of coal ash from the banks of the Waccamaw River in Conway. The settlement resolves lawsuits filed by the Southern Environmental Law Center on behalf of the Coastal Conservation League, the Waccamaw Riverkeeper, and the Southern Alliance for Clean Energy to require removal of the coal ash. “This is an historic agreement that removes toxic coal ash from beside the Waccamaw River and from Conway,” said Frank Holleman, Senior Attorney for the Southern Environmental Law Center. “This settlement is good for Conway, good for the river, and good for Santee Cooper. We thank Santee Cooper for reaching this agreement.” For decades, Santee Cooper has stored coal ash from its Conway Grainger generating station in unlined lagoons in wetlands beside the Waccamaw River. The lagoons discharge arsenic into the groundwater and the neighboring Waccamaw River, sometimes at levels 300 times the legal limit. The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control determined that the arsenic pollution violates the S.C. Pollution Control Act. As a result, Santee Cooper closed the Grainger plant and proposed a plan that would leave the coal ash beside the river indefinitely, in a so-called “vault.” Local community members opposed the plan at a public hearing and Conway City Council adopted a resolution asking Santee Cooper to remove the ash from their town. Under the settlement, Santee Cooper must remove the ash from Conway and the Waccamaw River within seven to ten years. Santee Cooper will also remove one foot of soil from beneath the lagoons.

“This settlement is good for Conway, good for the river, and good for Santee Cooper. We thank Santee Cooper for reaching this agreement.” -Frank Holleman, SELC If it stores the ash, Santee Cooper must put the ash in a “class three” or better landfill. Santee Cooper will also withdraw the closure plan that includes the proposed vault and will propose a closure plan providing for removal of the ash. Furthermore, the settlement contains requirements for groundwater testing and for action to be taken if the arsenic level in the groundwater does not decline. The removal of the coal ash will eliminate the source of arsenic pollution from wetlands beside the Waccamaw River. The removal will also eliminate a potential liability for Santee Cooper. In addition, it will rehabilitate wetlands in the center of Conway, just feet away from

the Conway City Marina and not far from the Conway Riverwalk. “This settlement is a landmark agreement for South Carolina’s Lowcountry,” says Nancy Cave, North Coast Office Director for the Coastal Conservation League. “The settlement removes the toxic coal ash and removes the threat that it poses to the health of the river and the communities alongside it. The agreement also provides further precedent for the handling of coal ash in the future.”


Cruise Control

Dana Beach

Citizens Defend Historic Charleston by Katie Zimmerman, Program Director Legal Update CCL vs. Carnival: In June 2011, the Coastal Conservation League, the Preservation Society, Historic Ansonborough Neighborhood Association, and Charlestowne Neighborhood Association filed suit against Carnival Corporation for violating zoning ordinances and permitting requirements, and creating a nuisance. In January 2013, the state Supreme Court-appointed judge recommended allowing the nuisance claims to proceed. The Supreme Court is deliberating on whether to adopt that recommendation. CCL vs. Army Corps of Engineers: In April 2012, the Army Corps of Engineers approved the S.C. Ports Authority’s federal permit request without any public notice, calling the new cruise terminal project “maintenance.” In July 2012, the Conservation League and the Preservation Society brought suit in federal court to restore required public review of the proposed $35-million cruise terminal slated for construction next to Charleston’s National Historic Landmark District. In September 2013,

Judge Richard Gergel issued a written order to vacate the permit granted to the S.C. Ports Authority (SPA) by the Corps. SPA has appealed the ruling. CCL vs. DHEC-OCRM: In 2012, SPA applied for a state permit to install pilings in critical area for the new cruise terminal. This permit request to the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control’s Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management (DHEC-OCRM), unlike the federal version, did go on public notice. Despite hundreds of comments and specific evidence submitted to the agency on what negative impacts are occurring to the city from increased cruise operations, the agency approved the permit without undertaking the legally required analysis of alternative locations and steps to mitigate the terminal’s impact. A coalition of groups, including the Conservation League, submitted a request to the board of DHEC-OCRM to review the staff ’s approval of the permit. In January 2013, that request was denied. Therefore, in February 2013, the League filed a request in the state’s Administrative Law Court for a hearing to challenge the permit. A trial

C OA S TA L C O N S E RVAT I O N L E AG U E

date for this case has been scheduled for late January 2014. However, in September 2013, SPA filed a motion to dismiss the case, contending that the community groups lack “standing” to challenge the new cruise terminal permit. The League argued that permitting the new terminal without full examination of mitigation measures will impact members of the community groups, and that we and the other plaintiffs have standing to challenge the permit. The Administrative Law Judge concurred and ruled that we do have standing to proceed.

Savannah and Key West say “No” June 2013: Savannah City Council officially voted against a $70-million cruise terminal. Local news outlets reported that members of council asserted that “the experience of other cities making such a large investment” has been poor, and that funding a cruise terminal “was a dumb idea.” October 2013: The Key West Chamber of Commerce was pushing for a referendum to study whether dredging their main shipping channel

to accommodate larger cruise ships would be beneficial. Citizens of Key West banded together and defeated the referendum by a majority vote of nearly 74 percent, telling their city commissioners that Key West has reached (if not overextended) its carrying capacity for cruise ships.

Norfolk, Baltimore, and Boston were all dumped by Carnival this year. The cruise giant alleges it is pulling out because of the cleaner fuel rule and associated costs. In Norfolk, the loss of Carnival after investing more than $30 million in a new terminal in 2007 has prompted local council members to say it’s time to move away from cruise ships and adopt a new business model.

Shore Power Study A new study concludes that cruise ships in Charleston could dramatically reduce pollution by plugging in to the electrical grid and using shoreside power. The study, conducted by Energy and Environmental Research Associates, compares air pollution emitted from cruise ships that use power from the electrical grid instead of burning fuel while docked. Even with more stringent fuel requirements for ships, the researchers concluded that shore power would significantly decrease almost all major air pollutants from the Carnival Fantasy in 2015. Shore side power is already being used in seven ports around the United States – including the cruise terminal in Brooklyn, New York – and Carnival has taken credit for having led the industry in developing shore power for

cruise ships. But the S.C. State Ports Authority rejected shore power for its proposed $35-million cruise terminal in Charleston’s downtown historic district. State regulators did not question SPA’s faulty claims about shore power and federal officials issued a permit for the new terminal with no public notice or individual environmental review. Community groups have challenged the state and federal approvals, contending that options like shore power should be considered publicly and openly. Like floating cities, cruise ships with thousands of people aboard require large amounts of power and burn large amounts of fuel. On board combustion results in the emission of numerous pollutants of concern while the ships are docked in downtown Charleston. The study examined a number of pollutants, including particulate soot, and compared emissions levels using actual SCE&G data versus what ships

produce by idling dockside. For the 2,000-passenger Carnival Fantasy, use of shore power would reduce carbon monoxide emissions by 92 percent, ozone-causing nitrogen oxides by 98 percent, small particulate soot by 34 percent, and carbon dioxide by 26 percent. The new study also found that an earlier SPA paper underestimated air pollution emissions from cruise ships in Charleston by nearly 75 percent. Furthermore, the type of shore power used in other ports could dramatically reduce harmful air pollution from cruise ships in Charleston. Reduced air pollution means healthier air for the families who live in Charleston, the workers who work there, and the tourists who visit – a result that is good for the environment and good for the economy.


Grow With Us

GrowFood Carolina – A Campaign for Food and Farmers by Lisa Turansky, Director of Sustainable Agriculture The flooded fields have drained, the fall crops are blooming, and fresh produce is streaming into the GrowFood Carolina warehouse. There is no better way to celebrate GrowFood’s second anniversary! We are now working with more than 50 farmers – having started two years ago with five – and more than 115 restaurants and grocery stores across metropolitan Charleston. This expansion has resulted in GrowFood ending the quarter 20 percent ahead of projected sales, with more than $620,000 funneled directly into growers’ pockets since its inception.

A

nd we’re not just working with fruits and vegetables anymore. This fall, we began including goat cheese from Lone Palmetto Farms in Lamar, South Carolina among our many offerings. Just in time for the expanding product line, an additional cooler was installed in the warehouse to accommodate a wider array and larger volume of fresh local products. GrowFood also hired another staff member, Jake Sadler, to assist with CAROLINA new warehouse and sales operations. Community support for GrowFood continues to grow. On October 2nd, GrowFood was the beneficiary of an anniversary celebration night across the Holy City, when 23 restaurants donated five percent of their profits to the local food hub. Also in October, the national event “Cook It Raw” chose GrowFood Carolina as its nonprofit community partner to celebrate Lowcountry cuisine with chefs from around the world. The event, held on Bowen’s Island, gave GrowFood Carolina international exposure, as well as $5 of each ticket sold.

Lastly, Charleston Wine and Food Festival selected GrowFood Carolina to be the 2014 community culinary partner for the second year in a row. The GrowFood Carolina Demonstration Garden’s pilot season was a tremendous success. Crop-Up and GrowFood worked together to provide weekly handson curriculum to 1st graders from Meeting Street Academy. Many other schools have enjoyed visiting the demonstration garden as well, where they have learned about the value of eating local fresh produce to support local farmers. GrowFood also provided local fresh fruit and vegetables to school-based farmers markets started by the Charleston Area Children’s Garden Project (CACGP), now maintained by the schools community. The success that GrowFood has experienced to date is a result of heightened consumer awareness, an expanding and revived farming community, and the hard work of many individuals and community members. Nevertheless, nothing could have happened without the generosity of GrowFood’s financial contributors. The next quarter marks the final phase of a capital campaign that will carry GrowFood Carolina into financial sustainability through 2017. We have raised nearly $1.2 million to date, and have just $300,000 remaining to reach our goal. Now is the time to carry our hard work to the finish line.

Small Farms Can Mean Big Business

L

leaving us to address some complex questions that needed answering before moving forward: Where exactly should we invest first? What can public and private individuals, communities, and governing bodies do to most effectively build the local food economy? To answer those questions, the Conservation League assembled a group of leaders in the state’s agricultural sector. The League, The S.C. Departments of Agriculture and Commerce, the Palmetto Agri-business Council, Clemson University, The Farm Bureau, and Carolina Farm Stewardship Association formed a committee that raised funds and hired a consultant to create a strategic plan for local food system investment called Making Small Farms into Big Business. The goal of the plan is to outline investments in our food systems that would advance sustainable agriculture, local food businesses, and rural economies in South Carolina. Recommendations include strategies to increase on-farm infrastructure (irrigation, packing sheds, equipment, etc.) and off-farm infrastructure (processing facilities, food hub development, distribution networks, and cold storage); to recruit and support local farmers; to create local food and farm-

ast year, one conversation changed the course of agriculture as we know it in South Carolina, and it happened at the GrowFood Carolina warehouse. The Coastal Conservation League and local leaders in conservation, banking and agriculture met in the small conference room on Morrison Drive to discuss an urgent agenda for agricultural reform that would connect a rapidly growing consumer demand for local food and farm products to rural opportunities that could supply that niche. Directing the state’s agricultural conversation and agenda away from export-oriented goals would be completely new territory for many decision makers. A small group carried our conversation to S.C. Secretary of Commerce Bobby Hitt and made a case for increased investment in local agriculture. After all, South Carolina is the perfect place to grow almost anything. The growing season is nearly year-round, water abounds, and land and people are the Palmetto State’s greatest assets. Combine these characteristics with urban local food fervor and a responding marketplace, and the opportunities are nearly limitless. Commerce Secretary Hitt agreed,

based jobs, and to grow the specialty crop economy. On December 5th, Agriculture Commisioner Hugh Weathers unveiled the Making Small Farms into Big Business initiative; but, it is not the plan itself that is revolutionary. Its unconventional collaborative momentum and strategies for building a new local agricultural economy are a game-changer for South Carolina. The unprecedented consensus built around the plan’s goals and methodologies will undoubtedly lead to a more robust local food economy in the coming decades. And it is the success of GrowFood Carolina – the state’s first working, replicable model of a local food hub – that gave state leaders the confidence to move forward with this bold agenda. Being a part of something seemingly local is a huge part of changing the entire system.

with Robert Foster A Coastal Legacy Society Member

A. I grew up in downtown Charleston during the Depression. No one had much money. When I was a boy, I loved to sail and loved the water. My family would rent a cottage at the Isle of Palms. Later as a teenager, I spent a lot of time with friends at the old Pavilion there. We also would row a boat from Folly Beach to Kiawah Island to go duck hunting, camping out and carrying a half-dozen cans of pork and beans to give to the couple who lived on the island and built the duck blinds for us. One year, a storm came up and we almost drowned rowing across the Stono Inlet. During my teenage years, I also spent several summers at the Episcopal Church’s Camp Kanuga in the North Carolina mountains, which contributed immensely to my spiritual life.

I then entered the University of South Carolina School of Law in 1948, becoming editor of the Law Review. I went on to earn a Masters in Law from Duke University and was awarded a Ford Foundation grant to pursue an additional year of graduate study at Yale, which was a very important year for me. Once out of school, I was called back to active duty in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War and served aboard a destroyer escort. Subsequently, I was assigned to the Naval Justice School in Newport, Rhode Island where I taught military law to JAG (Justice Advocate General) Corps officers. I remained in the Naval Reserve for forty years and was promoted to Captain when I retired.

She was secretary to my commanding officer at the time and a native Rhode Islander. When my active duty was up, I heard from the Dean of the University of Louisville School of Law, who invited me to come teach. So my wife and I moved to Louisville, where I taught for nine years. While at Louisville, I got a call from Bob Figg, dean of the law school at the University of South Carolina, who invited me to join the faculty. Returning to my home state appealed to both my wife and me, and I accepted the offer. Then in 1970, I was appointed Dean of the School of Law, a position I held for six years.

QQ. What did you do after retiring as Dean of the School of Law at the University of South Carolina? A. After retiring as dean, I spent a year as a visiting professor at Oxford and the following year as a visiting professor at

NYU Law. Afterwards, I returned to the USC Law School as a Chair Professor of Law and finally retired as Dean Emeritus and Distinguished Professor Emeritus in 1991. Shortly thereafter, the governor awarded me the S.C. Order of the Palmetto. Then I became an active arbitrator and mediator and was elected to the National Academy of Arbitrators. I like to say that I spent the first 35 years of my career teaching people how to litigate in the courts, and the remaining 25 years showing people how to mediate and arbitrate to avoid the courts where appropriate. In the 1970s, I worked very hard to successfully persuade the legislature to pass the S.C. Uniform Arbitration Act. Other states had begun to adopt laws that facilitated and authorized arbitration, but it took a long time for South Carolina lawyers to embrace the concept. It changed the common law so that if all parties agreed to go before an Arbitration Judge, they would be free to do so. I call it a “Judge for Hire” because the parties agree to vest you with the authority to arbitrate. Today, of course, it is a much more accepted and sought-after method for resolving disputes to a final and binding decision.

QQ. What is it about the work of the Coastal Conservation League that appeals to you? A. Because of my background in mediation and arbitration, I appreciate Dana Beach’s approach and the way the Coastal Conservation League seeks to solve environmental problems through open dialogue and negotiation with the opposing parties. Like war, litigation should only be used as a last resort. A good example is how the Conservation League worked with Vaught Industries in siting their aeronautics plant next door to the airport in North Charleston [which later became the site for the Boeing plant]. Through reasoned negotiations, the two parties agreed to the establishment of a wetlands mitigation bank to compensate for wetland

C OA S TA L C O N S E RVAT I O N L E AG U E

13

destruction that would result from the plant’s construction. In turn, the Vaught mitigation monies were applied to the preservation of thousands of acres in the Ashley River Plantation District. This is an enlightened and innovative approach to problem solving. The cruise ship dispute is another matter. I don’t understand why our Ports Authority is refusing to work with the community and negotiate. They have forced the issue into the courts, which is unfortunate. I’m a Charlestonian and I understand the problem of these ships running their engines and spewing out pollution across the city. Both the port and the cruise terminal should install shoreside power.

QQ. What are the environmental issues that Most concern you? A. My greatest concern is climate change. We have been on the wrong path and a dangerous path. We cannot continue polluting without devastating the earth. We must put the skids on pollution. There should be a better balance between the additional costs to industry in implementing necessary measures for reducing CO2 and the need to protect the environment. I also worry over the destruction of wetlands, and the loss of their cleansing and regenerative effects.

QQ. Are you hopeful regarding the future of South Carolina’s environment? A. Yes, I am hopeful about the future, especially with groups like the Coastal Conservation League providing a reasoned voice for solutions and change. The League’s legislative program, especially, has been a very important and positive influence in educating our representatives about the issues. I shudder to think where we would be if not for the work of Dana Beach and the Conservation League over the last 25 years.

Skimmer Watch

O

ver the years, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has been concerned about the lack of nesting success for black skimmers on Deveaux Bank, one of three seabird sanctuaries managed by the agency. On Deveaux, the intertidal zone is open to the public, but above the high tide line is off limits. These are the very zones where skimmers spend their precarious existence during breeding season. The black and white seabird with a scissor-like bill has become a “species of concern” because it is highly susceptible to disturbance from humans. If flushed from its nest for even a short amount of time, its eggs are susceptible to overheating and predation by other birds, especially laughing gulls. Other seabirds nesting

on Deveaux include the gull-billed tern (another species of concern), the Sandwich tern, the royal tern, and the brown pelican (for which Deveaux is the largest colony in South Carolina). The Coastal Conservation League, in partnership with the Audubon Society and DNR, implemented a “bird babysitting” program over the summer to encourage as many chicks as possible to fledge. DNR had recorded no successful black skimmer fledglings in at least three years. A fabulous group of volunteers devoted their weekends to protecting the skimmer nests and other breeding birds at Deveaux, educating boaters and visitors on the plight of these magnificent seabirds.

Here are the results of the volunteers’ hard work: Q 23 black skimmer fledglings (hatched chicks that can fly on their own) Q 15 gull-billed tern fledglings Q Hundreds of royal tern fledglings Q Thousands of brown pelican fledglings

You can read about the bird-sitting experience of Carl Cole, one of our volunteers and a Coastal Master Naturalist, at the following link: http://coastalmasternaturalists.org/all/nesting-black-skimmers-ondeveaux-bank-by-carl-w-cole/ C OA S TA L C O N S E RVAT I O N L E AG U E

How can we continue to help these birds thrive? Q Avoid leaving food scraps behind on the beach Q Don't let children run and flush birds even when birds are resting in the intertidal zone Q Avoid walking next to the sign line near the black skimmers (the roped off area) Q Give nesting pelicans, terns, skimmers and their chicks space in the intertidal zone Q Share the beach Q Obey the “No Dogs” law on the island Q Do not disturb birds to get a photograph, no matter how tempting it may be
