SCWF Sponsors Nature Walks This Month

We've been having some great weather in the midlands lately, and it's a great time of year for a nature walk. The South Carolina Wildlife Federation will host two nature walks designed for families. The first will take place March 19 at the Carolina Children's Garden which is located at the Clemson Extension Education Center on Clemson Road in Columbia.

The second walk will be held March 26 at Riverfront Park (4120 River Dr.) Both walks are free, but you must register in advance by emailing sara@scwf.org.

The walks are a part of the National Wildlife Federation's Green Hour Program which stresses the need for kids to get outside for at least an hour a day. Certain plants, rocks, insects, and wildlife will be noted by naturalists leading the walks.

For more information on these walks, and on other programs sponsored by SCWF, visit the Federations website at http://www.scwf.org/.
