Conservation

is our mission

The Palmetto Bluff Conservancy was created to ensure the conservation vision for this amazing piece of land in the heart of the Lowcountry.

The Palmetto Bluff Conservancy was founded in 2003 with a mission of protecting the lush maritime forests and winding tidal creeks that define the spectacular geography of the land that is home to Palmetto Bluff. By maintaining the ecological and environmental integrity of the lands at the confluence of the May, Cooper and New rivers, we’re able to ensure that the ancient maritime forest, brimming with live oak and palmetto, is almost exactly as William Hilton saw it 400 years ago. The Conservancy is the keeper of the natural and historical world of Palmetto Bluff and the organization responsible for educating everyone involved in the development of a new piece of property.

Palmetto Bluff Club

You'll Find it at

The Club

Golf or gourmet. Fishing or fitness. Racquets or rifles. Bowling or biking. For members of the Palmetto Bluff Club, days are defined by endless choices. A myriad of first-in-class lifestyle offerings accessorize the magnificent, rolling landscape: unforgettable dining at Canoe Club and Cole’s; the sporting camaraderie at Wilson Lawn & Racquet; fresh finds at The Farm; the gorgeous greens of the May River Golf Course. From wellness pursuits to waterway excursions, from the Shooting Club to Longfield Stables, the adventures and amenities found here exhilarate, engage, and inspire.

It never leaves you.

Palmetto Bluff is a Lowcountry community unlike any that has come before it: a vibrant residential and recreational preserve enriched by wilderness and wildlife, unspoiled rivers and salt marshes, and the sounds and smells of nature. This extraordinary place is the platform for Palmetto Bluff’s higher purpose: to allow people to experience the magic of 20,000 acres and 32 miles of riverfront in its ultimate form.

Southern Architecture

Relaxed and informal living

The earliest settlers were mainly English and French, and they brought with them an architectural language that was more rectangular and formal. These designs were assimilated into the coastal climate of the Carolinas. The use of columns and symmetrical layouts were then relaxed with deep porches for shade and raised foundations to capture coastal breezes.

Utilize the Environment

Taking advantage of the coastal setting and climate

The influence of early settlers can be seen in the incorporation of wraparound verandas, porches and raised foundations to ameliorate the climate impact and take advantage of breezes and the sun, including orienting houses to maximize the coastal views.

Historical Designs

A collection of homes that evolved over time

As families grew and priorities shifted, many Lowcountry dwellers began to add secondary structures, such as cottages and garages, to their homes. Residences evolved into collections of informal, detached structures, rather than one dominant building. This evolution preserved the region's rural nature and brings a comfortable scale to Lowcountry communities.

Palmetto Bluff Builders

Artistry in the architecture defines every Palmetto Bluff Builders’ home. Boasting both superior quality and dazzling detailing, our dedicated local architects and craftsmen understand the Lowcountry’s myriad of landscapes and the ideal home to complement each one. Our innovative built-for-sale process ensures that the ownership experience is expedient, effortless, and frustration-free.

Water Quality

Water Quality

As good stewards of the land, we too must protect the creek and river systems that surround our edges. Lagoon systems are designed to absorb runoff from homes and road systems to ensure there is drainage away from the creeks and rivers. To complete the cycle, we take our bodies of water that are catching runoff and naturalize them with aquatic vegetation and fish to be used for recreation and to kick-start a highly functioning freshwater ecosystem.

Habitats

Habitats

Palmetto Bluff has over 20 different habitat types. With that amazing diversity comes remarkable biodiversity. If a species lives in the Southeast, you will find it here, making Palmetto Bluff home to hundreds of species of birds, reptiles, mammals and amphibians.

Indicator Species

Indicator Species

Our research centers on the indicator species that are the first to be affected by development. We know that if our work affects an indicator species, other species will soon follow suit. Our current research is focused on bats, bluebirds, cavity-nesting species, swallow-tailed kites, insects (which are the base of the food chain) and small mammals.

Species of Concern

Species of Concern

Species of concern are those whose population are threatened, endangered or of high ecological importance. We work with state and federal wildlife agencies to ensure that these species — bald eagles, bats, wood storks and oysters — are not being displaced or disrupted.

Wild Turkey

Wild Turkey

At Palmetto Bluff, we manage the land for the eastern wild turkey. The eastern wild turkey is an umbrella species, meaning all species will benefit from Conservancy efforts.

Healthy Herd

Healthy Herd

We study and manage certain species to ensure their population doesn’t exceed the carrying capacity of the land.

Wildlife Corridors

Wildlife Corridors

Palmetto Bluff boasts an interconnected system of green spaces that runs north, south, east and west for animals (and humans) to move freely through the landscape and developed areas. Hundreds of thousands of edges are created by these corridors.

Habitat Management

Habitat Management

Prescribed fire management is our most important tool in habitat management. Periodic, gentle burning opens the forest floor to sunlight and encourages a new, diverse understory. Overstory trees and all land animals benefit from this necessary practice.

Nature & Conservation

Nature & Conservation

Retain and sustain the best qualities of the land — its diverse beauty, its agricultural roots and its natural resources — and teach appreciation of what being in the wild means.

Design signature residential offerings and community programming that stay true to the character of the land, the history and the local culture.

Jess Nicoles + Erik Holmberg

Jess and Erik met on the internet. But not the way you’re thinking. They struck a chord of mutual appreciation on, of all platforms, Instagram, when Erik was only making wallets and Jess was still running a men’s neckwear brand. Eventually, a time came when restaurant managing had run its course for Jess, and Erik needed an experienced sewist to help him take his brand to the next level, so the J. Stark you know now was born. The two discovered quickly that their mutual vision for the company was made ever better by their own collaboration. Greater still were the ideas that blossomed with the help of their talented staff. More than just a wife-and-husband team, this is a crew of music lovers and foodies and philanthropists and creatives who work well together to make this brand the best it can be.

At its core, J. Stark is a bag and luggage brand. They make timeless, sturdy things that will be carried with you for a lifetime. And they keep their designs simple. They don’t put a pocket where a pocket doesn’t belong. The result is a product that is aesthetically minimalistic and highly functional.

Sheryl Stalnaker

Painter Sheryl Stalnaker finds joy in depicting saltwater life and the beauty of her surroundings. Capturing the feeling and energy of a scene in her paintings, Sheryl often starts a painting on location. Whether it’s a marsh and tidal river in the Lowcountry, an Atlantic coastline, or the rapids of a freshwater river, Sheryl captures the light, movement, feeling and energy of every scene with her paint.

“I paint with both a palette knife and a brush,” says Stalnaker. “I’ve always been attracted to art where you can see definitive marks from the artist’s hand. It has an energy that I’m drawn towards.” She uses paint straight from the tubes, sometimes mixing cold wax medium to add extra texture. “I do go through a lot of paint,” she says.

Stalnaker has shown her award-winning works in galleries along the East Coast, along with juried shows such as Piccolo Spoleto in Charleston, the Southeastern Wildlife Exposition, Artfields, and the Telfair Museum of Art Fair in Savannah.

“I grew up and spent most of my life in the semi-tropics of the Lowcountry of South Carolina, a place surrounded by water, where the marshes, rivers, and swamps provided endless subject matter for my paintings. I moved to the high mountain desert of Colorado, another stunning location where water is more scarce, but its power is evident in every canyon and mountain range there. I am grateful to live in and paint in both of these incredible landscapes.”
