Upstate Forever is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization relying on generous contributions from people like you. Here’s how you can help Upstate Forever defend your natural resources and promote balanced growth.
You can also become a citizen water monitor through the SC Adopt A Stream program, which is led in partnership by SC Department of Health and Environmental Control and the CU Center for Watershed Excellence. Upstate Forever was instrumental in advocating for a statewide Adopt A Stream program.
