Event description

Description

Join us for a paddling tour of the beautiful Sparkleberry Swamp in northwestern Lake Marion just west of Pinewood and Rimini, SC. This area is a fisherman’s and birder’s paradise, and has been designated an “Important Birding Area” by the National Audubon Society. John Cely will be our tour guide and will be accompanied by a representative of Santee Cooper and our CarWA Board member, Dr. Dan Hitchcock of Clemson University. You must furnish your own canoes or kayaks, paddles, and safety gear.

For questions and more information, contact Dr. Stratford Kay at stratford.kay@carolinawetlands.org.

Directions to the Sparkleberry Landing launch area: From Pinewood, take SC261 west about 0.9 mile and bear left onto Milford Plantation Rd. (County Rd. 43-808). Go about 2 miles and turn left onto SR51 (Camp Mac Boykin Rd.). In about 1.2 miles, turn right onto Sparkleberry Landing Rd. (there may not be a sign there) and follow it about 1.2 miles to its end at the landing.
