February 25 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Field trip to Meggett County Park!
Date/Time: Saturday, February 25, 2023 10:00 AM – 12:30 PM
Location: Meggett County Park, 7247 Ethel Post Office Rd, Meggett, SC 29449
Leader: Kristina Wheeler, Natural History Interpretation Specialist, CCPRC
Trip Description: Participants will enjoy a morning with Charleston County Park’s Kristina Wheeler at Meggett County Park. Newly opened to the public in 2018-2019, the park’s 416 acres offers a range of habitats including dry and mixed mesic forest, wetlands, and marsh islands. Participants will be able to view the progress of longleaf pine planted at the park in 2015. We will walk unpaved trails searching for various flora and fauna. We welcome folks to use iNaturalist to document species that can help grow the bio-inventory of the site.
Registration: Space will be limited to 24 participants. Please register by emailing Amber Von Harten at [email protected].
**There are no restrooms or amenities (including a lack of picnic tables) at the park, so plan ahead accordingly. Long sleeves and long pants are recommended as well as comfortable walking or hiking shoes. There should be available parking, but carpooling is always encouraged. Bring water, snacks, and a picnic lunch to bring along for the hike.
