Project Description:

This project seeks to preserve the Graniteville Wetland and Forest through the courts, and protect it from infill development, by finding a purchaser who will turn it over to the State or City Parks Department or to do so by way of eminent domain. By preserving these freshwater and tidal wetlands, this project aims to ameliorate the effects of climate change flooding and to buffer the effects of intensive air pollution. The Coalition seeks to educate and empower those who will be most affected by climate change.
