We recently announced the annual Open House at the Parks Mill Rocky Shoals Spiderlily Preservation site near Plum Branch on Stevens Creek, to be held on Saturday, May 16. Regretfully, considering COVID-19 travel restrictions issued by Governor McMaster, we must cancel this event. If you have signed up via e-mail to attend, you will receive a return e-mail confirming the cancellation.
What we will do instead, is put together a Virtual Open House for presentation on the Internet. A couple of us will travel down to Parks Mill just before May 16 and shoot photos and videos of the Site and the Spiderlilies for assembling into a webpage to be posted on the SC Native Plant and Naturaland Trust websites. We will make the URLs for these webpages widely available to interested groups.
So, you will be able to continue “sheltering in place” and still experience the wonder of this Site and the Lilies at their peak. You will be able to see the majesty of the creek valley, hear the babble of the Creek, see some wildlife, and experience the Mill itself, while avoiding contact with those little pesky wildlife, the ticks!
So watch for the release of the webpage link, stay in, wear your masks and gloves, and be safe!
