We are the local county partner for USDA- NRCS, Natural Resources Conservation Service. USDA-NRCS provides Farm Bill Programs and technical assistance for agriculture producers in Beaufort County.
Our Commission is guided by SC DNR Land Conservation Division and they help with technical & education assistance.
Our USDA-NRCS District Conservationist helps many agricultural producers in Beaufort County practice good conservation methods that preserve soil and protect water quality. They are "Helping People Help the Land". See link below to find out more about Farm Bill programs.
SC Department of Natural Resources leads the conservation districts throughout the state to advise them on policies and procedures according to state law.
Coastal and local DNR staff help with education programs, training, and on the ground conservation such as oyster restoration projects.
We are in the Crystal Lake Park office building on Lady's Island Drive on the corner of Rue du Bois.
See map below.
Crystal Lake Park is a passive Beaufort County park. Enjoy hiking around the lake on the boardwalk and dirt trail or relax on the dock to view birds and other wildlife. Fishing is catch and release only.
Several species of mammals, birds, reptiles, fish, trees, plants and insects can be seen at Crystal Lake Park. Salt water flows into the lake making it brackish so it's not unusual to see shrimp, small crabs, or saltwater fish.
