- Get Involved
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.
We are fortunate in Upstate South Carolina that most of us have access to plenty of clean drinking water whenever we need it.
And yet, in this part of the world, in an era of modern convenience, it’s all too easy to take clean water for granted. It's easy to forget the value of water and the immense role it plays in our daily lives. As our region grows, it’s more important than ever to recognize the tremendous value of water — and to fight to protect it.
Upstate Forever works with landowners, utilities, developers, and other local leaders to protect critical land for water quality, such as headwater streams and watershed lands. We also advocate at the local, state, and federal levels to advance policies that protect our drinking water, as well as the places we love to fish, hunt, swim, and explore.
