hydrangeaA look out at the brilliant Lowcountry scenery gives us a better outlook on life!  Hilton Head Island is colored with nature’s finest vegetation and tinted with warmth.

DolphinI CAN’T WAIT FOR MY FIRST DOLPHIN PROJECT EXCURSION! 

I’ve been in the Low Country for some time now, and have been looking for a volunteer project in that I could really invest my time and efforts. Nothing really caught my eye, until I read the article about the Dolphin Project in the Local Life magazine. The more I read, the more interested and excited I became!  Throughout high school, I was always interested and excelled in science. Combine that with my love of the water and wildlife, I was smitten. I immediately signed up for the two-hour Zoom class, which explains the project and what they are trying to accomplish.  

As a volunteer, I'll work alongside marine researchers and other volunteers to collect photo ID research of all of our…

Bird Island

The Port Royal Sound is 1,600 pristine acres of water, marsh, and land.  It extends from the northern sea islands in Beaufort to the sparkling waves rippling onto the immaculate shoreline of Hilton Head Island. The Port Royal Sound is where brown pelicans dive for their favorite seafood meal to go, and bottlenose dolphins leap for joy. It is a spectacular design by nature of the Atlantic Ocean’s inland straights, creatively weaving like artwork through the Lowcountry.

The Port Royal Sound Foundation excels at education, conservation, and action to ensure our natural habitat lasts for generations. Their mission for living in harmony with the land unites the Lowcountry’s ancestral, natural, and historic resources that make up the Port Royal Sound…

An early mWelcomeorning cup of coffee on your Daufuskie Island porch awakens your senses as you begin a typical spring day like many Americans. Yet, in the absence of rumbling motors and horns, you hear an osprey’s babies chirping for breakfast from their eyries. The fresh, pollutant-free air swirls scents of Southern magnolia and Carolina jessamine, along with droplets of moist seawater that beckon you to venture deeper into the surrounding nature. A peaceful stroll along the unpaved road leads you down a path once traveled by Native Americans, British soldiers, the Gullah community, and many others throughout Daufuskie Island’s impressive history. 

Denny Jaskowiak is one of approximately 400 full-time residents that dwell across the 2.5-mile-wide and…

“I care.”  Two simple words tenderheartedly shown to our Lowcountry neighbors in need can be life-changing. Tragedy and devasting circumstances may strike unexpectantly. Without assistance, some families living could face eviction, shortage of food, or out-of-reach home repairs. Nonprofit organizations such as Deep-Well and Bluffton Self Help are at the heart of Beaufort County as they positively impact residents in need with more than temporary assistance; they give hope and guidance for a better future!  Cargo Van Loaded with Food
