We invite you to join the community of people who support and sustain Conestee Nature Preserve

We all love Conestee Nature Preserve. Whether it’s the place you go to get away, meet friends, observe wildlife, restore inner peace, walk your dog, ride your bike, take a class, or all of the above, the Preserve is a special place for so many, including you!

Did you Know?

Conestee Nature Preserve is owned and operated by a small nonprofit organization. The dedicated staff of this organization teaches the classes, plants the trees, builds the boardwalks, clears the trails, plans the events, and does everything else required to make this special place enjoyable for you. This work is only possible, though, when it is funded by charitable giving. This means that, as much as you need Conestee Nature Preserve, it needs you too!

Our relationship is a reciprocal one. We’ll keep listening to you and trying to make CNP the very best place it can be. We hope you will help us do that


What our Visitors are Saying

This is my happy place. I see owls, fawns, beaver, otters, muskrats and many variety of birds and frogs! Much more!
