Our main purpose is the preservation of the biotic diversity of the Coastal Plain of the southeastern United States. We believe this mission can best be achieved through two activities: disseminating knowledge and understanding of natural history, ecology, and environments of the Coastal Plain and increasing new knowledge through scientific studies.

You can support our mission by becoming a member. We do not receive annual salaries, we have no rent/mortgage, and have very little other costs, so you can rest assure that your tax-deductible donations go directly to action!
