The environmental team is on point for local, state and federal attempts to weaken protections. Actions include a lead role in trying to ban single-use plastic bags in Beaufort County. We also have a booth on the last Saturday of the month at the Port Royal Farmers Market, and a float for the Beaufort Water Festival. The team also takes action to oppose offshore oil drilling and seismic testing.
