I congratulate the Board of Directors on their choice of Andrew Waters as the new Executive Director of the Spartanburg Area Conservancy. He was an essential part in the movement to save a 42-acre track on land within my town that was slated for clear-cutting. It is now a passive, hardwood park known as Spencer Woods. I will miss my friend and colleague. Excellent choice!

While I've only known about SPACE for a short amount of time, the events and projects that they've provided Spartanburg have given me an excellent insight into the importance of land conservation and it's role in preserving and enriching a community. SPACE's efforts in maintaining the Glendale Shoals Preserve, particularly since they began a partnership with Wofford College's Environmental Studies Program, has been especially exciting for me to observe and participate in. The Glendale Shoals Preserve is certainly one of Spartanburg's most precious natural and historical gems, and it is in large part thanks to the Spartanburg Area Conservancy that the public is able to utilize, learn about, and enjoy this special place. Also, as a part of Wofford's Environmental Studies staff I'm looking forward to collaborating with the SPACE team to plan their annual Jazz on the Bridge event at Glendale Shoals. This event is a perfect example of SPACE's ability to responsibly employ a nature preserve that benefits both the vitality of the space, and also brings together a community.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the conservation of the Glendale Shoals Preserve in Glendale, S.C., as well as in events such as Jazz on the Bridge.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

continue to do everything I could to bring more awareness to the organization's purpose, projects, and goals.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

still unknown. However, I'm looking forward to working with them in the near future!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

friendly, and enthusiastic about helping me learn more about their organization.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

ensure the protection of tons of beautiful acres of wilderness and countryside, as well as educate the community about it's importance and value.

Ways to make it better...

I had known more about the organization earlier.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

a matter of being a small, but growing non-profit in a small city that's slowly embracing movements in the realm of sustainability, conservation, and preservation, etc.

One thing I'd also say is that...

SPACE's possibilities are endless!
