The ACE Basin NERR provides the public with valuable sites to pursue recreational interests. SCDNR believes experiencing this special place first-hand is key to begin protecting it.
Here are some ways to recreate responsibly:
The Reserve is partnering with researchers from Clemson University to better understand how people recreate throughout the ACE Basin. By figuring out how many people are in specific areas and what activities they engage in, we can then better protect our coastal and natural resources, increase inclusion and accessibility, and create a better experience overall for our visitors.
Are you an ecotour operator, guide, or business owner? Come to our winter workshop series! SCDNR develops workshops for ecotour operators so they have the most up-to-date research, resources, and best practices. We understand the valuable role ecotours provide to thousands of visitors in the effort to protect our natural resources. Sign up for our email list to learn more.
