- May 18th
- Adopt-a-Trail Workday (Indian Pink)
- June 1st
- National Trails Day
Over the years, we have noticed recurring natural events at the park that coincide with our workdays, so each seasonal workday will be themed. For our spring workday, we chose Indian Pink because these beautiful wildflowers are in bloom along Weston Lake Loop Trail and Oakridge Trail in late May.
We will be clearing our adopted trails for Memorial Day weekend, the busiest weekend of the year at the Park. In addition to clearing the trails of fallen limbs and intruding branches, vines and cane, there is always a lot of spring growth (holly, ironwood, pawpaw, etc) to cut back.
We will meet at the Visitor Center at 9 AM and will finish in the early afternoon. Work gloves, light hiking boots, water, and a snack are recommended. If you have loppers, long-handled shears (good for switch cane) or bow saws, bring them along. Friends members and Park staff will provide gear if you do not have any. Please contact John Grego (email@example.com; 803-331-3366) if interested.
The public is invited to roll up their sleeves alongside Congaree National Park rangers to celebrate National Trails Day on June 1 from 9:00 am-12:00 pm. Sponsored by Trader Joe’s, The Friends of Congaree Swamp, and American Rivers, the 3-hour event is a great way to give ( more )
