Our Mission is to enhance the quality of life in Charleston County by preserving natural spaces within its urban and rural communities. This includes wetlands, sensitive upland property, scenic vistas and public spaces such as parks. We primarily seek to protect through voluntary donated conservation easements that include anything from larger tracts of land to a single signature tree.
In 2010, the Town of Mount Pleasant saw an increase of 179% in new construction projects. As the only non-profit land trust in the East Cooper region that focuses on preserving small urban properties, the Mount Pleasant Land Conservancy (MPLC) plays a critical role in protecting our decreasing undeveloped natural spaces and their conservation value. The Urban Land Protection Intern will gain experience with our land protection efforts by assisting with protected site evaluations, land conservation research, and conservation report writing. The Intern will gain experience in both field and office work and will have the opportunity to assist with other projects as they come up. Strong writing and computer skills required. Ability to work independently is a must.
