Rapid urbanization in our county continues to put great pressure on natural resources resulting in the disappearance of farmland, open space vistas (like pastureland), and wooded areas. The loss of trees to development, as well as the lack of preservation of green spaces and buffers along some of our beautiful streams in the county, is highly concerning. Your help can give us a stronger voice in educating Lexington County residents on conservation efforts.

This past fall we added a new member to our staff in the position of part-time Education Program Assistant. With their help, we hope to implement new classroom and community programs, future summer activities and workshops. We are also working towards partnering with Stormwater Management, Clemson Extension and local businesses to host programs and events to will provide Lexington County residents with opportunities to learn more about conservation in a fun and welcoming environment. These programs will also us help educate and encourage Lexington County youth to be more mindful of their impact on the environment.

Support from our Affiliate members provides funding for our variety of programs such as:

  • Helping county students attend conservation workshops

  • Providing college scholarships related to environmental and conservation majors

  • Celebrating Arbor Day in elementary schools

  • Student photography and poster contests that highlight agriculture, recycling, water quality, and an appreciation for our natural resources

  • Providing Mini grants to support conservation projects and youth environmental education initiatives


If you are concerned about the state of our county’s natural resources, and you share our desire to mitigate the impact we have on our environment so our county can continue to grow and thrive for future generations; please complete and return the enclosed form. Your contribution is tax-deductible, and memberships of more than $50 will receive two admissions to the 2024 Annual Recognition Banquet. Every contribute helps and is greatly appreciated.
