The East Cooper Land Trust is looking to finance the Oakland Pipeline segment of a 1-mile public trail via donations.
The completed East Cooper Trail would connect downtown Charleston and Mount Pleasant to Sullivan’s Island, Isle of Palms, Awendaw and McClellanville, officials said.
According to officials, $150,000 is being provided by Mount Pleasant Waterworks to the East Cooper Land Trust. The remaining $150,000 needed to finance the project, they said, will need to come from a variety of sources, including grants and foundations -- with community support being the most important piece of the effort.
With a goal to having the money raised by the end of 2017, donations can be made to http://eastcooperland.org/ donate.
