Through the power of education, the LifeTides Institute strives to conserve and protect South Carolina’s Low Country.  As a charitable organization, LifeTides uses its donations and proceeds to support education, especially among area youth, and to support habitat conservation and management for local community welfare.

Our Mission is to serve local communities by teaching about and conserving the natural settings and heritage of this beautiful part of  South Carolina.  We offer youth and adult continuing education courses and work with local schools and communities to support awareness and stewardship of this special coastal environment and its history.
