Certificate in Native Plant Studies
The South Carolina Native Plant Society (SCNPS) and the South Carolina Botanical Garden (SCBG) are excited to offer a Certificate in Native Plant Studies program. To read more, click here.

The piedmont physiographic region of South Carolina covers about a third of the state and is composed of rolling hills.  Natural habitats range from dry upland communities and granite outcrops through mesic slopes to seasonally wet floodplains.  Plant species present vary greatly with soil composition and moisture; thus, allowing for a high diversity of species. Visit key areas in the piedmont region with experienced Newberry College educator Dr. Charles N. Horn.

Piedmont Communities is an elective course. Pre-requisite: Basic Botany.

Location: Meet at Sumter National Forest Enoree/Tyger Office on SC 121/ US 176 (about 1 mile north of junction of the two highways; 10 miles north of Newberry)
