Natural Fit

Central Savannah River Land Trust recently announced the preservation of 72 acres of woodland and pasture on the edge of Grovetown.

The forests and fields were once part of a large family-owned dairy. Now, thanks to the family’s generosity, this slice of pastoral land has been preserved in perpetuity.

The land’s owners have reserved the rights to continue farming the land — growing trees, planting crops and raising livestock — while permanently prohibiting all forms of development, including building, paving, mining and other activities that would damage the land’s natural resources.
