I don’t have to tell you how much things have changed these past few weeks.
But some things have stayed the same. Our land trust remains committed to protecting the Upstate’s critical lands through voluntary conservation easements, and our regular season of stewardship — the annual monitoring of land protected by a conservation easement — has continued, albeit with a few adjustments.
In this time of great uncertainty, I wanted to share some more good news from Upstate Forever’s land trust: We recently completed five conservation projects, totaling 624 acres of land that is now protected forever.
Because of your support, Upstate Forever protects more than 23,500 acres across the ten-county Upstate region. We hope to share more conservation successes with you soon!
Stay safe out there,
Glenn Hilliard Director of Land Conservation
