Lewis Ocean Bay Heritage Preserve – Attributes and Management Challenges
Trapper Fowler, North Coast Project Manager Coastal Conservation League
NOTE: Meeting location for this lecture will be at Byrd Hall on The Citadel campus, directly south of our usual lecture location (Duckett Hall), at 1 Jones Avenue.
Former Lewis Ocean Bay Heritage Preserve manager Trapper Fowler will discuss what makes this site SC’s most biologically diverse heritage preserve, how fire historically and currently plays a role in maintaining the habitat and why this specific location is such a challenge to burn today. We will discuss how the Coastal Conservation League has identified this preserve’s protection from external threats as a major priority for their work and what is being done to ensure this treasure is sustained.
