A Walk in the Woods:
Connecting to Southern Forests, Past and Present

Ninety Six, SC-- It is said at the time of America's discovery, a squirrel could travel from the Atlantic Ocean to the Mississippi River without ever touching the ground. While this may be a bit of a legend, it is undoubtedly true that the forest we see now have changed drastically since the first colonist established a homestead in the Americas. From Native Americans to colonists and Revolutionary War soldiers to modern industries, the land surrounding Ninety Six has undergone many changes. Ninety Six National Historic Site now protects the memory of the Revolutionary War battles fought here and also preserves the forest and all its inhabitants.

On Saturday, August 6 and Saturday, August 13 at 10:00 am, Ninety Six National Historic Site will host a nature walk to explore the great outdoors and learn about southern forests, past and present. The walk will start at the flag pole near the parking lot. A volunteer will lead visitors on a one mile loop through the woods. During the walk, participants will learn how colonists adapted to this wilderness, how to identify some common southern trees, and about individuals' roles in conserving our beautiful forests.

The walk is open to all ages, is completely free and there is no registration required. Visitors should dress for the weather, wear comfortable walking shoes, and bring plenty of water. In case of inclement weather, the tour may be canceled and not rescheduled.
