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.
The Edwin M. Griffin Preserve (home of the beloved Cottonwood Trail) covers 110-acres around a 1.5 mile stretch of Lawson’s Fork Creek and several feeder streams. With over 5 miles of natural surface nature trails and Wildflower Way (1 mile of newly constructed ADA-accessible paved trail).
Located at the old Glendale Mill on Lawson’s Fork Creek.
Located on the headwaters of the Chinquapin Creek across from the Milliken Research Center.
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.
