Our Greenville and Spartanburg offices have closed while Upstate Forever staff work from home to help protect the health of each other, our families, and our communities. But while we are not together in the office, we remain together in our continued efforts to protect our region's critical lands, waters, and unique character.
Upstate Forever is excited to host the annual ForeverGreen Awards Luncheon on Monday, February 24th, 2020 at the Embassy Suites on Verdae Boulevard. The luncheon celebrates individuals for significant contributions in fields related to conservation and sustainable growth. In addition to the awards program, this year’s ForeverGreen Luncheon will feature a celebration to honor Upstate Forever’s founder and conservation hero, Brad Wyche.
Upstate Forever’s Executive Director, Andrea Cooper, is thrilled to celebrate individuals throughout the Upstate, who are actively working to better the environment as a whole. “This year will be very special as we celebrate our fearless founder, Brad Wyche. Without his humble leadership and dedication to finding common ground, Upstate Forever would not be where it is today,” Cooper said.
In 1998, Brad Wyche left a successful law practice and founded Upstate Forever to protect special places and promote responsible growth in our region. During the first year, he worked alone in his home with no funds and no staff. Today, Upstate Forever has 21 staff members and has protected more than 23,000 acres across the Upstate. The positive impact Brad has made on the Upstate — and South Carolina as a whole — is tremendous.
This year’s award recipients are:
