SCNPS-managed Carolina Bays: Lisa Matthews Memorial Bay & Kingsburg Bay
online webinar at https://www.facebook.com/SCNPS/
Presenters: Sudie Thomas (Natural Resources Conservation Service) & Lisa Lord (The Longleaf Alliance)
Did you know that the SCNPS manages two Carolina bays, a fascinating and biodiverse type of depression wetland? Lisa Matthews Memorial Bay, located in Bamberg County, was acquired by the society in 2003, and its restoration has been a resounding success. Kingsburg Bay, in Florence County, was acquired just last year, and planning for its restoration is actively underway. In this webinar you will learn about Carolina bays, some key native plants found in this habitat, how these properties were acquired, habitat management goals, partnerships and funding, and upcoming plans for both bays.
