New map shows Upstate land in critical need of protection

Nathaniel Cary of The Greenville News writes about a new project that aims to protect water resources, natural habitat, wildlife and other resources in the Upstate. Upstate Forever, together with Furman University, and funded by a grant from Pacolet Milliken, has completed an interactive and multifaceted map which identifies land in 10 Upstate counties deemed most critical for protection from development. The project was led by John Quinn, Furman assistant professor of biology. The group plans to use the map to better target landowners to gauge their interest in protecting the land determined to be most at risk.
