ACE Basin Project

The ACE Basin Project is a joint effort between federal and state government agencies, private conservation groups and local landowners to preserve and protect the ACE Basin area. The Ashepoo, Combahee, and Edisto Rivers which give the basin its name, combine to create one of the largest undeveloped estuaries on the Atlantic Coast.
