What is SI For All?

Our mission is to preserve the incredible gift of the Sullivan’s Island Maritime Forest for the benefit and enjoyment of ALL. Please join us!

What is the Maritime Forest?

Sulllivan’s Island’s beach is growing (accreting) and that’s made it possible for a beautiful, protective, maritime forest to flourish.

Why We Must Stop the Chop!

Climate change is accelerating. The Maritime Forest provides hurricane storm surge protection, resilience and incredible natural beauty.

Sullivan’s Island to Expand Scenic Nature Trail

A new trail in the maritime forest will be 3 times as long as the original trail, and will include matting to support wheelchairs. A big thanks to Town Officials for making this happen!

Appeal Filed to Overturn Ruling that Saved Maritime Forest

As you are aware, on January 30, 2023, in a blockbuster victory for the environment, a South Carolina Circuit Court invalidated the Settlement Agreement entered into by a previous Town Council that would have allowed the destruction of our unique Maritime Forest. But that is, unfortunately, not where our effort to save the maritime forest ends!

Town to Hire a Director of Resilience & Natural Resource Management

We’re excited to report that, for the first time, Sullivan’s Island has approved the hiring of a Director dedicated to managing the town’s natural resources across the island

Three Things You Can Do to Stop the Chop!

The deforestation of Sullivan’s Island is much larger than just an “island” issue. This land was put into a public trust for the benefit and enjoyment of ALL of us — and decisions on how our maritime forest is managed, should not be left in the hands of two private homeowners who want ocean views and breezes. Please Help us Stop the Chop!

Make Your Voice Heard

Together we can let our elected officials and permitting agencies know that destroying the maritime forest isn’t good for anyone. Putting ocean views above nature, wildlife, hurricane storm surge protection and community resilience cannot be allowed.
