With so much uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 in the Upstate, across the country, and around the world, our Greenville and Spartanburg offices closed this week while Upstate Forever staff work from home to help protect the health of each other, our families, and our communities.
However, you can rest assured that our team is still working hard to protect our region's critical lands, waters, and unique character. Even though we are not together in the office, we are together in our continued efforts and dedication to this work that benefits all of us.
Thanks to your support, we are still working with landowners, utilities, and stakeholders to protect the Upstate's land and water resources; still advocating for smart growth, energy, and conservation policies at the local and state levels; and remain dedicated to protecting what makes our region so special during these unprecedented times. We will continue to share the progress of our work with you.
