The South Carolina Conservation Bank is back in the business of protecting special places throughout the state of South Carolina.
On July 24, 2012, Upstate Forever had 8 properties receive funding for conservation. Even more significant, 5 of those properties are located in Oconee County. In total, Oconee County is set to receive over 951,000 dollars from the Conservation Bank.
These five properties are hopefully a sign of great things to come for Oconee County, thanks in tremendous part, to the efforts of Oconee Forever and Upstate Forever.
