We will meet at 9:00 AM at the Visitor Center, 4542 Silver Bluff Road, Jackson, South Carolina, and will cover areas not generally open to the public. The Visitor Center is on the dirt road portion of Silver Bluff Road so keep going after the pavement ends. We will butterfly both in the morning and the afternoon. The restrooms at the center will be open at the beginning of the count and at lunch.
Meet at the Silver Bluff Audubon Sanctuary at 9:00. There is a restroom facility and drinking fountain available before the count starts and again around noon during a lunch break. The nearest town with full services is Jackson, SC. It is recommended that you pack a lunch and snacks and bring water. Walking conditions are generally easy. Bring good bug spray, hats, sun block, binoculars, camera and a field guide. Wear long sleeves, long pants, sturdy shoes and any additional items you might need to have a pleasurable experience. Please refer to the Silver Bluff Audubon Sanctuary website, Audubon’s Silver Bluff Sanctuary, for more information about visiting the facility. Everyone is welcome to attend. We will divide into two groups if there are a sufficient number of participants so we can cover more of the Sanctuary.
