The Alliance

South Carolina’s 47 state parks contain an array of natural, historical and cultural treasures that extend from the marshy wetlands of the Lowcountry to the majestic mountains of the Upstate. Our state parks provide educational and recreational opportunities for millions of South Carolina residents and visitors each year.

The Beautiful Places Alliance is a not-for-profit foundation established to ensure the continuity of these resources for future generations of South Carolina residents and visitors. This foundation was created to assure that the places protected throughout the South Carolina State Park Service do not become mere memories. The Alliance provides funding for:

  • Enhanced park programs that promote meaningful learning, healthier lifestyles and a greater appreciation of our natural resources.
  • Sustainable environmental initiatives to protect and enhance visitor experiences at state parks.
  • Preservation of natural and cultural assets for current and future generations.
