St. Helena ~ Nature Hike at Penn Center National Historic Landmark District

Reconstruction Era National Historical Park invites the public to attend a free birdwatching and nature hike along the Capers Creek Nature Trail at the Penn Center National Historic Landmark District on Saturday October 28 at 8 am. The hike will begin at Darrah Hall and last around 1-hour and cover approximately 1-mile of walking.

As the summer heat of the Lowcountry turns to the relatively cooler weather of fall, many of the region’s birds are on the move. Join a park ranger and Bill Jirousek from the Fripp Island Audubon Club for a guided walk to learn more about environmental stewardship of the coastal marsh, and the birds, trees, plants, and wildlife that call St. Helena Island home. Participants are encouraged to wear long pants and closed toed shoes, and dress appropriately for the weather. The park will have binoculars to loan out for the hike, but participants are invited to bring their own as well.
