Native Plants and the World They Support

Oct 13 , 2018

The week of October 13-20 is South Carolina Native Plant Week! What makes a plant “pest resistant”, and do we really want that?  Why are native plants important to all of us?  Let’s talk about questions like these on a discovery walk hosted by the Piedmont Chapter of the South Carolina Native Plant Society at Anne Springs Close Greenway.  Led by a SC Master Naturalist, we will seek to discover and share how native plants support life on our big blue planet.  This walk is a good one for kids and dogs too, so bring the family!

We will meet in the Adventure Road Parking Lot. Suggested things to bring:  water, hat, sunscreen, bug spray, comfortable walking shoes, binoculars and your curiosity!

Following our walk, feel free to check out more trails at the Greenway Adventure Road entrance or purchase tickets to attend Fall Frolic on the Greenway

This event is free to Greenway members. Daily $5 visitor fee applies to non-members.

*More about SC Native Plant week:  Sparked by legislation drafted by Audubon South Carolina, South Carolina Native Plant Week was first introduced as a resolution to the state legislature in 2017 and signed into law by Governor McMaster in April 2018. This resolution recognizes the importance of native plants and permanently establishes the third week of October as Native Plant Week in South Carolina. To show our love for native plants, Audubon South Carolina and the South Carolina Native Plant Society invite you to participate in Native Plant Week.
