Nemours Wildlife Foundation - Toyota Donation

The Nemours Wildlife Foundation is located in northern Beaufort County, comprised of approximately 10,000 acres along the Combahee River. The missions of the Nemours Wildlife Foundation include stewardship and scientific study of the natural resources located in their portion of the ACE Basin Focus Area. The preservation of hunting heritage is secondary to science at the Nemours Wildlife Foundation, an organization that exists due to the foresight of Mr. Eugene Nemours DuPont III, 1914 - 1995. A private entity is always looking for supporters and in this case the "Friends of Nemours" consists of well-meaning folks who want to speak up for conservation. One such Friend of Nemours is Jo Cooper, Vice-President of Toyota North America, and she 'spoke up' with a 2009 donation through the Toyota Corporation - signifying that the excellent programs at Nemours are worthy of corporate recognition. Another Friend of Nemours is naturalist Rudy Mancke, and he will lead an on-site field trip for members this fall, October 24th. Anyone interested in joining the Friends of Nemours can give the Foundation's event planner Ashley Jones a call at 843-368-2554.
