CHARLESTON COUNTY, South Carolina (WCBD) – The Charleston County Parks and Recreation Commission is launching an ongoing program that allows guests to show off their natural finds.
CCPRC’s Rely on Nature program allows participants to be guided through a tour of the natural environments of various county parks. Guests will be accompanied by a professional naturalist and will be able to photograph and document their findings on digital platforms, including mobile apps and websites.
“The bottom line is that more reporting means more understanding, which can mean more support for protection and conservation,” says Keith McCullough, Natural History Interpretation Coordinator. “We would like to share our knowledge of natural history first, and second, our knowledge of reporting apps and websites and their use, in the hope that people will use their new reporting skills on their own. . “
Registration is $ 9 per person and clients must register in advance. Participants will explore Palmetto Islands County Park, James Island County Park, and Johns Island County Park
Participants will help conserve biodiversity in addition to learning about different wildlife species, including plants, animals and surrounding ecology.
Count on Nature will take place every Wednesday from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
