Lake Conestee Nature Park

Lake Conestee Nature Park (LCNP) consists of approximately 400 acres of beautiful natural habitat on the Reedy River just 6 miles south of downtown Greenville, South Carolina. The park contains both hardwood and evergreen forest, extensive wetlands, 3 miles of the Reedy River, and a rich diversity of wildlife habitat. Deer, raccoon, beaver, fox, river otter, and various small mammals inhabit the park, along with numerous species of reptiles and amphibians. Over 200 bird species have been reported by the Greenville County Bird Club. The park has been designated as an Important Bird Area of Global Significance by the National Audubon Society.

LCNP is owned and operated by the Conestee Foundation. The Mission of the Conestee Foundation is to develop Lake Conestee and contiguous community lands into a nature park and wildlife sanctuary for public recreation and environmental education. Each year around 3,000 students from Greenville and surrounding counties visit the park for nature based field trips. The park also offers educational events that are open to the general public twice a month.
