Audubon Society getting 384 acre preserve in SC

Jun 21, 2010 8:02:00 AM - thestate.com
An environmental group is buying 384 acres for a bird sanctuary near the South Carolina coast.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported Monday that Audubon South Carolina and its partners have won a bird habitat conservation grant to help buy some of the Four Holes Swamp in Dorchester County.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service grant is for $1 million.

The environmental groups are working to protect land along a 40-mile run of the swamp from near St. Matthews to the Edisto River near Givhans.

Experts say the swampy areas in eastern South Carolina are a stopover for ducks, sparrows, blackbirds, herons and warblers.
