Volunteer Opportunity: Crosby Oxypolis Heritage Preserve

Just wanted to remind everyone about the below volunteer opportunity, we will be limiting the group of volunteers to 15 people total. Therefore you must RSVP in order to participate. Let me know as soon as you can as I have only heard from a couple of folks so far. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

RSVP to: fowlerj@dnr.sc.gov

Thanks-James Fowler, SCDNR
Please come enjoy a day (Friday, December 1, 2017) helping to remove woody plants to promote Canby’s Dropwort (Oxypolis canbyi), with us! We will use hand shears and loppers to cut down species such as regenerating pine, sweetgum, maple, and other misc. hardwoods. We will start the day around 10 a.m. and conclude around 2 p.m. (or adjust time as needed). Bring snacks and waters, field clothes, yard tools (pruners and loppers). Look forward to seeing and meeting some of you!

Location: Crosby Oxypolis Heritage Preserve (Latitude: 32.887 Longitude:-80.807) near Walterboro, SC
To reach the preserve from Walterboro, travel west on SC Highway 63 for about 9 miles until the junction with County Road 191. The preserve is located in the southeast corner formed by these two roads.

Please RSVP so I can have a head count
Time: 10am-2pm tentatively
