PAC partners with Upstate South Carolina Geocachers Association (USCGA)

Published 10:00 pm Monday, September 1, 2014

Join the Pacolet Area Conservancy (PAC) and the Upstate South Carolina Geocachers Association (USCGA) on Saturday, September 6 from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. for a Cache In Trash Out (CITO; a “trash pickup”) at the 2-acre Town of Tryon lot near IGA. All are welcome and encouraged to come help remove trash from the 2-acre lot.
This is a great chance for area residents to meet up with geocachers and learn about the activity as well as work together to give back to the local community.
Goats have been actively working at this site over the summer and have eaten down the Kudzu and other vegetation, but they’ve exposed a lot of trash that has accumulated on the site. The goats will be returning in the fall and this is a great opportunity to get out and clean up the site before their return.
The 2-acre lot has all types of terrain. It contains two streams, a flat area, and a steep bank along a roadway, offering something for everyone.
Bags, water and snacks will be provided by PAC. Bring own gloves and dress appropriately. Volunteers are asked to meet at the IGA at the corner of Hwy 176 and Carolina Drive.
For more information or to sign up, contact PAC at 828-859-5060 or
PAC is a 501(c)(3) non-profit conservation organization (land trust) founded in 1989 to To protect and conserve natural resources with emphasis on the lands and waterways with scenic, ecological, and agricultural significance in the North Pacolet and Green River watersheds (PACs mission).
PAC works with area landowners to ensure the long-term protection of their property through voluntary conservation easements (agreements) which enable landowners to maintain ownership of their property, preserving precious natural resources (open lands, forests, wildlife habitat, scenic vistas, farmland, stream banks, etc.), and potentially obtain significant federal, state, and local tax benefits.
PAC works diligently to provide leadership to encourage conservation and provide education programs emphasizing responsible land use practices to help – save the places you love.
