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.
Jill Moore, Master Naturalist and owner of Moore to Life, will guide the group on this interactive discovery walk sharing information and answering questions about all we’re sure to see! The natural path provides an easily walkable terrain, and the guide will have a scope for wildlife viewing. In just a short walk we will experience several different eco-systems and explore the variety of flora and fauna found in each one.
During the tour we'll explore the salt marsh and all the incredible details around this unique eco-sytstem, the mari-time forest, history of the area, and of course all the birds and critters we come across. Jill will have a spotting scope to allow for up-close viewing of the wildlife but participants are encouraged to bring along binoculars as well if they have them.
We will meet in the middle of the parking lot by the covered sign.
Parking can be limited so carpooling is suggested.
There are NO bathrooms except the great outdoors so plan accordingly.
Each participant will need to dress for the weather with appropriate footwear for walking on a trail, preferably closed-toe. Sunscreen, bug repellent, sunglasses, a hat, water, and binoculars are suggested as well.
Helpful hints for getting to Pinckney Island National Wildlife Refuge
Coming from Bluffton over the 1st bridge be prepared to turn left after the fly-over merge. (some GPS try and take
you over the bridge so make sure not to do that).
