Ladies, go show your support for the East Cooper lifestyle by joining us at Alhambra Hall on November 14th.
Formerly the Mount Pleasant Land Conservancy, the East Cooper Land Trust has recently redefined their geographic scope to more effectively address the rapid population growth occurring in and around Mount Pleasant.
The organization will focus their land conservation efforts on the East Cooper area; coastal areas between the Cooper and Santee Rivers where development pressures are soaring.
Their new focus area includes Mount Pleasant, Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, Daniel Island, Cainhoy, Awendaw, McClellanville and the surrounding unincorporated areas.
“Natural spaces connect us with the environment, culture, and history that define where we live, adds large value to communities,” said Pat O’Neil.
Join the fun on Thursday, Nov. 14 for A Night for East Cooper - a fundraising event to support conservation efforts that will shape the future of the East Cooper area.
Highlights of the night include: Local Cuisine, Live Music with Social Beat, and a Silent Auction.

All funds raised at the event will go toward the conservation of natural areas that help to keepEast Cooper a great place to live, and enjoy for hundreds of years to come.
East Cooper Land Trust will be leading the most important and ambitious conservation effort for the East Cooper area. We will:
Identify and conserve natural spaces of environmental, cultural or historical value.
Enrich our urban community with natural spaces and preserve the rural character of surrounding coastal communities.
Collaborate with other organizations to provide natural lands such as parks, gardens and trails for people to enjoy.
Provide education about the benefits of open space and conservation for all ages.
As a non-profit, non-political organization serving communities between the Cooper and Santee Rivers, we rely on your financial support.
