Join Conserving Carolina and the Landrum Library for a free lecture entitled, “The Nature Conservancy’s Blue Wall Preserve: An Ecological Light in the Dark Corner,” presented by Kristen Austin, Upstate Conservation Director for The Nature Conservancy. The program will be held on Tuesday, April 18, at 6 p.m. at the Landrum Library, 111 East Asbury Drive Landrum, S.C. 


The Blue Wall Preserve, located just outside of Landrum, is a 575-acre preserve that is owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy (TNC). Kristen will talk about the unique history of the preserve, how it was acquired, and how the property is being used today. During the presentation, you’ll also learn about a dam removal project that will restore the hydrology of Vaughn’s Creek, a South Carolina Outstanding Resource Water and headwater to the Broad River Basin.
