CHARLESTON, SC (FOX 24 NEWS NOW) — It’s no secret Charleston is booming with hundreds moving to this charming city every day.

But, it’s not just the population growing — concerns of rising sea levels, pollution and coastal health are also increasing.

The South Carolina Sea Grant Consortium is offering a chance for individuals to connect with scientists and local policymakers to address these issues.

Susan Lovelace, assistant director for Development and Extension at the Consortium, shares on what’s being done to protect our environment and how the Lowcountry can get involved.

The Consortium generates and provides science-based information to enhance the practical use and conservation of coastal and marine resources that foster a sustainable economy and environment.

An event coming us is the 29th Annual Volunteer-Driven Litter Cleanup. It will be held Saturday, September 16th.
