Wannamaker Preserve Clean-up
January 21 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
For our MLK Day service project this year, Dave Schuetrum suggested a clean-up at Wannamaker Nature Preserve. This beautiful preserve is managed by Audubon with the intent to use it for education and research in the future. It is not generally open to the public so it is a special opportunity to see the property. There is a pavilion with picnic tables that needs a general spruce up – clean pine needles from the roof and underneath. Bring rakes, brooms, and leaf blowers.
We may prune/pull some invasive species or do some trail maintenance. Bring gloves and loppers.
Members of Columbia Audubon and the South Carolina Association of Naturalists will be invited, too. We can all walk eat lunch and walk the trails after cleaning up around the pavilion. You may want to bring water, snacks/lunch, sunscreen, hat, binoculars and identification books. There is no restroom on site. You can stop in St. Matthews on the way for facilities.
Directions: From St. Matthews take SC 6 southeast for approximately four miles. The preserve is past Beacon Light Road on the left side. There will be signs by the entrance gate.
