Warblers of WHAM!
9 AM meeting at the Colleton Museum & Farmers Market Pavillion. This is an easy nature walk but will be continuous for three hours, with no bathroom availability.
Bring binoculars or a camera, whichever they prefer. Dress for the weather, and bugs may show up if it's really warm.
Trip leader Jeff Dennis is a local resident, Birder, and Naturalist.
Walterboro's nature-based attraction, the Wildlife Sanctuary, offers visitors the ultimate Lowcountry experience, combining history, culture, recreation and education in a singularly southern lowlands setting.
Just three minutes from I-95, the environmental jewel is ideally positioned to serve as the gateway to other nature-based centers in the state and as a catalyst for the greatly expanding ecotourism market. Located within the ACE Basin, the East Coast's largest estuarine preserve, the 600-plus acre Sanctuary features what may be the only "braided creek" swamp accessible to the public.
A completed network of boardwalks, hiking, biking, and canoe trails provide a perfect vantage point to observe the diversity of wildlife inhabiting the black water bottomland. The most historically significant of these paths follow the Colonial-era Charleston-to-Savannah Stagecoach Road still bearing the cypress remnants of long-fallen bridges.
