We are really excited to continue working with all of our great local partners, and now the National Park Service, to promote the blue trail, improve public access and protect riverside land.

In the coming months, we will also be working with the National Park Service to designate the Waccamaw River Blue Trail as a National Water Trail. This, in addition to all the other great work of our partners, highlights the importance of protecting this special river because of all the benefits it provides the community and the local economy.
