The Power Preserve

A conservation easement was donated in 2003 by Walt and Gwen Power on their 20-acre tract near Monetta. This property lies near the headwaters of McTier Creek, one of the important tributaries of the South Edisto River. A pond on the property is spring-fed, staying full even in the driest summers. Plant communities located under a power line on the property include some rarer species as a result of fire suppression in the area. This tract includes dry upland, hillside seeps, and a handsome grove of longleaf pines.
