Spartanburg Area Conservancy

SPACE protects and conserves land for Spartanburg area citizens, volunteer landowners, and visitors by building strong relationships within the community through positive outreach.

Where reasonable and permissible, SPACE provides access to conserved land so that the citizens can respectfully experience, appreciate, and benefit from Spartanburg’s natural resources.

SPACE sustains itself through volunteerism, responsible stewardship, and sustainable management of resources.
