Field Trip to Moores Creek National Battlefield

(2- 4 P.M.)
Event Sponsor: South East Coastal Chapter

Paul Somers, botanist, and Jonathan Grubbs, Park Guide/Public Relations Coordinator, will lead a field trip through Moore’s Creek National Battlefield.  The park’s 88 acres have a wealth of native plants, including the rare Spring-flowering Goldenrod (Solidago verna), Carolina Birds-in-a-nest (MacBridea caroliniana), Venus Flytrap (Dionaea muscipula) and Carolina Grass-of-Parnassus (Parnassia caroliniana).  Moores Creek runs through the park and is a tidally influenced “black water” creek with considerable cypress growth.  There is also a small pine savanna currently being restored.
