Upstate Forever’s nationally-accredited land trust announced April 30 it completed a conservation project to protect Grant Meadow’s 21 additional acres in Pickens County.
The land, which joins a 36-acre property that was placed under a conservation easement in 2013, is located at the base of Table Rock and is near Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway 11.
The conservation project was made possible by a partnership between Upstate Forever and the landowners, as well as a grant from the South Carolina Conservation Bank.
Following the completion of the project, Grant Meadow will continue to be managed as a hay meadow.
The property features a 19th-century barn that sits under the monolith of Table Rock across the meadow. It also contains two tributaries of the South Saluda River.
