Norfolk Southern’s Brosnan Forest conference facility is a 14,400-acre preserve near Charleston, S.C. Renowned as an ecological treasure, it is habitat for the largest U.S. population of endangered red-cockaded woodpeckers on private land and one of the country’s largest remaining stands of longleaf pines. 

In 2008, NS granted a conservation easement on 12,488 acres of the Forest to the LowCountry Open Land Trust, ensuring the land will be protected permanently from development. It is the largest gift of conservation in South Carolina history.
