About the Event

The uplands of our coastal plain were historically dominated by fire-adapted habitats, like long leaf pine savannahs. These days, such habitats are dwindling, but you can still visit them in places like the Donnelley WMA. Join Master Naturalist, Jeff Dennis, of Lowcountry Outdoors, for a guided tour of this exemplary, state-run wildlife management area. You will see the impacts of prescribed fire, marvel at native biodiversity, and hopefully see some wildlife along the way! We will lunch after the tour concludes at 12:00 pm. Please bring a bagged lunch if you’d like to join!
For utmost enjoyment, participants should dress in close-toed shoes (hiking boots or shoes are best). In addition, attendees should bring with them binoculars, water, sun-protection (sunscreen, hats, sunglasses), bug protection, snacks, and, if desired, field notebooks.
