BMW Manufacturing Joins Greenville Community to Celebrate Opening of Reedy River Wetlands Preserve

May 17, 2023

Greenville, S.C.  BMW Manufacturing joined the City of Greenville and dozens of children to celebrate the official opening of the Reedy River Wetlands Preserve at Unity Park. Last year, BMW Manufacturing donated $1.25 million to restore and preserve the urban wetlands west of downtown Greenville, South Carolina. The donation also supported the construction of low-impact, ADA-accessible boardwalks and overlooks through the wetlands.

“At BMW, we firmly believe that it is our responsibility as a corporate citizen to give back and support the communities where our associates live and work,” said Dr. Robert Engelhorn, president and CEO of BMW Manufacturing. “What better way to do this than preserving and protecting a natural environment like the Reedy River Wetlands Preserve in Unity Park, which aligns perfectly with BMW’s sustainability strategy. The boardwalk and learning areas will provide a quiet space where the community and visitors can walk, rest, and learn more about this unique ecosystem.”
