We recently worked with two private landowners to protect more than 600 acres in Union County. Each of these properties contains farmlands, forests, wildlife habitat, and impacts our region's water quality.
To realize our vision of a future that is healthy, vibrant, and prosperous for the Upstate, we know it is vitally important and essential to our core values that we engage the diverse community we serve.
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.
In the face of rapid growth, more funding is needed to protect the Upstate’s special places while we still have the opportunity.
Our team advocates for local and state policies that will help further our mission to protect the critical lands, waters, and unique character of Upstate South Carolina.
Your planned gift can help us achieve our goals for current and future generations, while you enjoy a wide variety of tax benefits.
