SCNPS Upstate Field Trip

Field Trip Event: Oconee Station falls and Nine Times Preserve

Location: Oconee and Pickens Counties

Date: Saturday March 21st, 2020

Leaders: Rick Huffman, Environmental Designer

Hike rating: Moderate

Costs: $15.00

SCNPS will sponsor an all-day field trip to historic Oconee Station Falls in Oconee County and an afternoon foray along the Eastatoe Creek and Nine Times Preserve areas. As a cove forest habitat, Oconee station falls is the premiere place for spring ephemerals such as Trillium, Foam Flower, Mayapple and more. The Eastatoe valley is rich with species and habitat diversity. Each hike is an easy walk and the waterfalls are wonderful.

Participants will meet 8:30 am at Holly Springs grocery at the intersection of SC 1178 and SC 11. We will carpool to the trail head parking on Oconee Station Road. Please email or call to reserve. Final itinerary will be sent a week prior the event. Please dress appropriately and bring lunch and water.

Our trip will be led by SCNPS founder, Rick Huffman. Rick has a rich knowledge of the geology, the natural history, native plants and the role they play in nature and for people. We are honored to provide this wonderful opportunity to share a day with Rick. Limit: 15 people, RSVP, Contact; Rick Huffman 864-901-7583 [email protected] Chris Sermons 864 992 6987 [email protected]
