After about two years of pursuing recognition of Lake Conestee Nature Park as a “Wildlife Sanctuary” in state statutes (like Francis Beidler Forest and numerous other properties around the state), our friends at the Conestee Foundation successfully passed H.4743 in both chambers, passing 84-0 in the House and 43-9 in the Senate. Representatives Eric Bedingfield and Chandra Dillard introduced the bill. This victory is long overdue and we’re happy to see the Park get this deserved recognition.
