The mission of The Edisto Island Open Land Trust is to preserve lands, scenic vistas, heritage, and conservation resources of Edisto Island for future generations, including education and outreach. Over 50% of Edisto Island has been protected through partnerships with multiple organizations and agencies. These wildlife preserves, the fun and educational nature programs, and the local landowners who take care of their conserved lands are all part of what makes Edisto Island so special.
