The Midlands Chapter of the Carolina Butterfly Society will hold a walk on Edisto Island on Sunday, August 30. Due to Covid-19, social distancing will be practiced. Please have a mask at hand for necessary times that may arise. Please note that we are not going to Botany Bay as previously planned due to the large crowds that visit there. Tom Austin will lead. Contact him if you plan to attend. firstname.lastname@example.org
We will meet at Roxbury Park at 10:00am in the parking lot. (There is a portalet in the parking lot.) Traffic should be low and social distancing shouldn’t be an issue. We’ll spend the morning at Roxbury before heading to the Hutchinson House after lunch. We’ll roam the trails there until we disband. We should be the only ones on the Hutchinson House property. (There is a portalet behind the house.)
Address for Roxbury Park is: 4494 Hwy-174, Meggett, SC
Address for the Hutchinson House is: 7666 Point of Pines Rd, Edisto Island, SC
Hutchinson House, which is now owned by Edisto Island Open Land Trust, is a freedman house constructed circa 1885 by a former slave. Efforts are in place to restore the home and grounds.
