The Nature Stewardship Fund is focused on preserving, protecting and managing the natural resources throughout the Charleston County Park system for the enjoyment and benefit of the citizens of the Lowcountry for years to come. A donation may honor the birth of a child, express sympathy upon the death of friends or relatives, or celebrate a milestone in a loved one's life. For each contribution, a card representing the occasion is mailed to notify the recipient family of the gift.
Funds are currently being accepted for the reforestation of Stono River County Park. The Asian Longhorn Beetle has infested and destroyed many of the maple trees at the park. Charleston County Parks will use the Nature Stewardship Fund to restore certain areas of the park with native species. Plantings are not designated with signage or plaques.
