The South Tyger River Blueways Tract is 52.85 acres and is the last large undeveloped tract in the town of Duncan, SC. It protects nearly 3200 feet of river frontage, allows passive recreation for paddlers, and has an adjacent acre providing parking and river access for paddlers thanks to Tyger River Foundation that was created at the same time as the conservation easement was placed on the agricultural land.
SPACE holds the conservation rights through the easement and the landowner operates the cattle farm and maintains the land. We work in conjunction with the landowner to ensure the terms of the conservation easement are followed by annual monitoring and frequent communication. This tract is a wonderful example of how landowners, the SC Conservation Bank, and SPACE can work together to protect a beautiful sweeping vista along a vital waterway, provide an important balance to nearby development, and remind people that agriculture, development, and conservation can coexist on a very local level.
Our natural places and working lands are part of our character as a community. Through thoughtful conservation, we can keep Spartanburg wild while continuing to grow and thrive. Learn more about how SPACE works.
We envision a Spartanburg community with natural resources and open spaces that are shared and enjoyed by people and wildlife today and for generations to come.
We work with private landowners and partner agencies to conserve land through voluntary conservation easements and currently protect over 5,000 acres in our community.
We work to provide access to green spaces for both people and wildlife. Our protected properties include watershed protection, wetlands, farms, forests, geological formations, and natural habitats.
