Congaree-Carton Mitigation Bank
The EARTHWORKS Group, through our work with the Fairlawn Partners and American Forest Management (AFM), established the Congaree-Carton Wetland Mitigation Bank within the South Carolina Cooper River watershed in the headwaters of the Wando River. The project site, located in Charleston County, includes approximately 424-acres near the Francis Marion National Forest. This project created approximately 1,500 wetland credits for sale to development clients. In the near future the bank will also provide non-buffer enhancement credits for estuarine tidal systems as well.
