Nemours Plantation: Rice Culture and Impoundments in the ACE Basin
December 4 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
Much of the ACE Basin is composed of plantations that historically used the river systems (Ashepoo, Combahee and Edisto Rivers) for rice cultivation. Today they are host to abundant wildlife and maintain a unique cultural heritage. This outing will feature a tour of one of the primary plantations of the ACE Basin, where we’ll seek out waterfowl, shorebirds, birds of prey and other bird species. Participants will learn about the protection of these animals through the management of impoundments.
The event will start with a classroom presentation followed by an open wagon tour of the impoundments.
We suggest bringing binoculars and water. Dress appropriately for time outdoors and bring any food and drink you may need for the day.
Rain date: Wednesday, December 11th, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Weather decisions will be made the day before the event and participants will be notified ASAP.
