Lowcountry: Lisa Matthews Memorial Bay
May 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Lisa Lord, SCNPS State President
The Lisa Matthews Memorial Bay (LMMB) is a 52-acre preserve in Bamberg County with a diverse Carolina Bay and associated longleaf pine uplands. The LMMB was acquired by the South Carolina Native Plant Society in 2003. The most important management responsibility on the property is a population of federally endangered Oxypolis canbyi (Canby’s Dropwort) that occurs in the bay. Lisa Lord, President of the State Board of Directors for the South Carolina Native Plant Society, will talk about the history of the LMMB, recovery of the Dropwort, ongoing management, future needs, and opportunities.
