The board of directors of the South Carolina Native Plant Society, led by president Jeff Beacham, visited Gateway Elementary School in Traveler’s Rest, SC to view the site of a proposed restoration project. A colony of the rare and Federally endangered Bunched arrowhead, Sagittaria fasciculata, has been found on the property but is being threatened by storm-water runoff. Jeff reviewed storm-water abatement plans which SCNPS hopes to implement in the coming months. The proposed changes could protect the existing plants and significantly improve the habitat. SCNPS has applied for a National Fish & Wildlife Foundation Native Plant Conservation Initiative grant to help with the costs of this project. Please stay tuned for updates!
