On SC Arbor Day, December 7th, SCWF Habitat Education Manager, Jay Keck, took a couple classes from Richland School District One’s Heyward Technology Center to Harbison State Forest to talk birds and snakes, plant native perennials and trees, and to take a nature walk. SCWF has been partnering with the SC Forestry Commission to take these classes on a field trip each semester for several years. Thanks to Matt Schnabel and Beth Foley of the SC Forestry Commission for hosting!
A note from Jay about the day: “Unfortunately a lot of these children don’t have the opportunity to explore the outdoors. It was amazing to hear and see their reactions to a new world. If you want to experience this reaction, take a child outdoors!!! You’ll love it! I look forward to many future events like this.”
