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, Charleston, SC 29403. Free parking is available after 5:00 PM in the parking lot south of Richardson Street, accessible from Mims Ave.  Please join us for refreshments after the lecture.

Former Lewis Ocean Bay Heritage Preserve manager Trapper Fowler will discuss what makes this site South Carolina’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 that this treasure is sustained.
