SCNPS is pleased to announce
a 2nd edition of the popular
“Wild Plants on the Rabbit” —

SCNPS announces the second edition of “Wild Plants on the Rabbit”, a pocket-sized brochure showcasing native and naturalized plants on the highly acclaimed Prisma Swamp Rabbit Trail. In addition to a few more plants, the revised brochure’s map includes the proposed Laurens Road corridor extension.

The 20-mile Trail allows people to get up close and personal with plants outside a cultivated setting. A common misconception is that a plant growing “wild” must be native to this area, but many exotic plants have established themselves along the Trail.

The brochure features over 100 trees, shrubs, grasses, ferns and wildflowers, with a photograph and a short description. SCNPS encourages people to use Wild Plants on the Rabbit as a checklist, checking off plants as they see them. Sharp eyes may spot Beardtongue, Trillium, Bloodroot, Devil’s Walkingstick, Cardinal Flower, Swamp Milkweed, Downy Lobelia, various Sunflowers, and even the small white flowers of the globally rare, federally protected Bunched Arrowhead!

Almost 400 species have been documented on the Trail. Visit https://scnps.org/swamprabbit for links to this more complete inventory and to submit photos for identification.

Wild Plants on the Rabbit brochures are free and available at Upstate Chapter events and at other outlets listed here — https://scnps.org/swamprabbit#a_outlets
