SC Native Plant Certificate Elective: NATIVE PLANTS AND BIRDS OF THE BEIDLER FOREST 4/19/18


Thursday, April 19

Native plants are immensely important to a diversity of wildlife, especially our native birds. Audubon South Carolina (ASC) owns and manages over 22,000 acres in South Carolina for the benefit of birds, and part of this elective course will be an exploration of ASC’s best-known property – the Francis Beidler Forest. This sanctuary features 1,800 acres of virgin, cypress-tupelo swamp; while historically abundant, this habitat type is now restricted to only two locations in South Carolina. Identification of the dominant plant species in this ecosystem will be discussed. Audubon South Carolina is also working to restore native ecosystems, and attendees will have the opportunity to explore two demonstration sites as part of this course – a longleaf pine savannah and native warm-season grassland. In addition, Audobon instructors will cover a variety of other topics, including bird identification, birds and climate change, gardening for birds, and bird-friendly forestry.
