Conestee Nature Preserve is owned and managed by the Conestee Foundation, a private non-profit organization. Conestee Park, the recreation area on Mauldin Road where you may park to access the eastern side of the Nature Preserve, is owned by the City of Greenville and managed by Greenville County Rec.

Conestee Nature Preserve is a 406 acre state-designated Wildlife Sanctuary; a conservation space for wild things, a world apart. It is also an Important Bird Area of Global Significance, a regionally recognized Birding Hotspot, and the Upstate Partner with Audubon-South Carolina. In addition, the historic lake parcel, including the Lake Conestee Dam, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Nearly all of our preserve is protected under a conservation easement held by Upstate Forever.

Our emphasis is on protection of this exceptional wild and historic space, providing a diverse array of wildlife habitats, and utilizing these spaces for compatible nature education programming.

We invite you to come discover Conestee Nature Preserve for yourself, remembering that here, you are a guest in a vast habitat that belongs to deer, raccoon, beaver, fox, river otter, salamander, frogs, snakes, and many other species. It’s a place to go slow and be quiet. Those who do so never know what they might experience. Come discover a world apart!
