2015 Harry Hampton Fund Events!
Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund
         unds are obtained solely through private donations and special promotional projects, events and publications and are applied to very specific, yet far-reaching goals.
    Contributions are administered by a board of directors comprised of eleven South Carolinians committed to responsible natural resources management and education.  Although some of the funds are donated to special projects run by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, they, of course, are not used to replace any department programs already supported by appropriated money.
     Public education in the principles of wildlife and marine resources management and conservation is a major thrust of the fund’s purpose, a priority to meet the growing need for better-informed caretakers of our resources in this age of increased urbanization and technology.  Other educations goals include: to survey and acquire knowledge of fish and game in South Carolina; to hold property in common for educational purposes; to assist interested individuals, such as writers and students, who contribute to an understanding of wildlife and marine resources management; and to educate and train individuals in fish, wildlife and marine resources management and law enforcement.
To date, much has been accomplished...

    A unique partnership of public and private groups is helping to change the face of Sassafras Mountain, South Carolina's highest point. The Sassafras Mountain Improvement Project officially got underway Monday, Sept. 17 on top of the 3,553-foot mountain in northern Pickens County.
    Ultimately, the project will include an observation tower to give visitors a 360-degree view of the surrounding mountains of Georgia, North Carolina and even Tennessee. Other amenities will feature new trails and other public-use facilities such as restrooms.
    Partners in the Sassafras Mountain effort include the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Pickens County, Clemson University, The Conservation Fund, The Highpointers Club, Duke Energy, the Foothills Trail Conference, and the Harry Hampton Memorial Wildlife Fund.
    The Harry Hampton Fund will receive the funds for the project, which present a unique opportunity for those interested in the project to contribute by purchasing a brick paver that will be placed on the mountain with the donor’s name engraved.
