What’s Happening

Defend

Defend our water quality

In an era of modern convenience, it’s all too easy to take clean water for granted. But as our region grows, it’s more important than ever to recognize the tremendous value of water — and to fight to protect it.

Land

Land trust accreditation

Upstate Forever's land trust recently renewed its national accreditation through a rigorous application and review process. Less than one-third of land trusts nationwide earn this distinction from the Land Trust Alliance.

Conservation

Conservation Webinars

The South Carolina Conservation Coalition is hosting a series of free, weekly webinars this spring. Hear from our partner organizations about offshore drilling, land protection, the State Water Plan, and more.

Protect

Protect More Land

In the face of rapid growth, more funding is needed to protect the Upstate’s special places while we still have the opportunity.
