Join the Forest Stewards Guild, Audubon South Carolina, and other partners in an outdoor day of learning about bottomland hardwood forest management. We will start the day at an outdoor pavilion to hear from natural resource practitioners about the ecology and importance of bottomlands and the benefits of wildlife forestry practices.
The second half of the day will be spent at two field sites, looking at how differences of management history affects the composition of the forest. The first site is an old rice field that has grown back into forest and the second site has been experiencing natural floodplain succession.
- Lunch is provided
- Plan to drive your own vehicle to field sites and park in designated parking areas
- Terrain is flat, however places may be saturated with water and we recommend bringing tall muck boots. We will not be on trails.
