In 2016, the Moody family placed a conservation easement on their 108 acre family farm in northern Beaufort County. Located within the Air Installation Compatible Use Zone (AICUZ), this conservation easement was purchased with funds from both the Program and the Marine Corps Air Station Beaufort (MCAS). The property will be conserved forever, protecting farmland, traditional rural land use, wildlife habitat and water quality, and fulfill the MCAS goal of preventing encroachment to protect flight operations and public safety. This conservation easement adds to the existing 3,600 acres that have been protected via conservation easements by the Program and the MCAS. These conservation easements are held by the Beaufort County Open Land Trust on behalf of the County.
