Opportunities for Support

John Henry Dick's vision for the property when he bequeathed it to the College of Charleston in 1995 was that it be used to educate the community about the importance of environmental protection and conservation. However, the continued success of the College's efforts to achieve that vision requires continued philanthropic support.

Any photography of the property, trespassing onto the property, or harming of the flora or fauna within it is strictly prohibited and violators will be vigorously prosecuted.
