From 12 miles of pristine beaches to salt marshes and maritime forests, the South Carolina Lowcountry has one of the most biologically diverse ecosystems in the country. There’s so much out there just waiting to be explored … and so much “moore” to life that can be gained from getting outside and connecting with nature.
Jill Moore, a certified master naturalist, founded Moore to Life to provide nature-based programs to local residents, communities and tourists here in the magnificent Lowcountry – a setting unlike any place on earth. With research showing that people function best when they have access to and a connection with nature, Jill and Moore to Life are committed to helping people discover a passion and appreciation for the unique area that surrounds us.

Meet Jill Moore
There’s a lot to learn along the road less traveled – especially if Jill Moore is your guide! Jill, Moore To Life’s founder, creator, and Chief Nature-Lover, has a background in education and is a certified master naturalist. Her goal is to foster an appreciation for our rich Lowcountry landscape through personalized programming and exciting outdoor experiences.
While Jill has built her career on exploration and discovery, her love of education has been a constant throughout her life. Jill’s love for outdoor living and learning started young while spending summers in Montana, and when she moved to the Lowcountry in 2008 as a teacher, she was one of the first people to enroll in a certification course through the Lowcountry Master Naturalist Association. For two years, she spent weekends traveling across the Lowcountry, learning all there is to know about the ecosystem from the smallest creature to the tallest tree and everything in-between. Her experience with hands-on, interactive learning inspired the programs at Moore to Life.
From kayak adventures and guided bike tours to discovery beach walks and nature preserve deep dives, Jill has led hundreds of expeditions to the most popular and “off the beaten path” outdoor destinations, both in the Lowcountry and abroad. She loves that no two excursions are the same – and not just because of the landscape. She’s inspired by the sense of excitement, adventure, and wonder her guests feel when they reconnect with nature.
Take a walk on the wild side with Jill on a scheduled excursion or book a private tour for a personalized experience.
