Southern Marsh strives to protect some of the South’s most quintessential landscapes.

With your help, we have placed nearly 10,000 acres of land into conservation to preserve the most beautiful areas of our region.

What are conservation easements? Permanent, legal protection for land that provides many benefits for the environment and surrounding communities.

Over the last few years, more than 8,620 acres have been conserved with the value of over $38,186,878 contributed.
