So great to see POST continuing its great work! If not for them and the hard work of like-minded others, all of these natural places would become paved-over housing tracts, roads, and offices.

What great foresight! Future generations will be thankful to those who cared enough to preserve what they had, for them.
I wish everyone could visit the Francis Beidler Forest Audobon Center and see more than 1000 years old, preserved because Beidler realized future generations would not get to see them unless protective action was taken. It is said this remnant of the Beidler land is the only area of South Carolina that has not been clear-cut at some time. I am grateful it is preserved.
