About the Event
If you have attended an LCMNA field trip in the last two months, please wait one week before registering to give other LCMNA members a chance to register. We thank you in advance for your kind cooperation.
Nemours Wildlife Foundation sits on the Combahee River, encompassing 10,000 acres of the ACE Basin. Attendees will explore Nemours Wildlife Foundation on a guided driving tour led by Education Coordinator, Heather Kraus. As the tour group travels through wetlands, fields, and forests, we will be on the lookout for birds and other wildlife that call the ACE Basin home. Along the way we will discuss historical events that shaped the landscape and the conservation efforts that preserve it.
All attendees will need to sign a liability waiver when they arrive. Otherwise, they will be unable to tour the property. Attendees will be on a trailer for the majority of the tour and only limited walking is required.
Driving Directions to Nemours: From Beaufort, head north on Highway 21. At Gardens Corner, use the right lane to merge onto Highway 17 N towards Charleston. Drive about 5 miles. Where the highway becomes undivided, turn right onto Nemours Plantation Rd (there will be a small sign). If you cross the Harriet Tubman Bridge, you have gone too far. Continue along the drive. When you reach a three-way split in the road take the leftmost branch. Follow the road until you reach two buildings on the left-hand side. There are no designated parking spaces at Nemours, but people should park between the oak trees across from the two buildings. We will meet in the Classroom building, which is the smaller one-story structure.
What to Bring: We will be outside so weather appropriate clothing is a must. We may visit open areas, where wind can be blustery, and make the air feel much cooler. Also, sunscreen, bug spray, water, binoculars and/or camera are all good ideas.
