New this year, we will visit the magnificent 3500 acres of forested nature preserves in a historic private community known as Money Hill Plantation. It features a golf and country club which is both simplistic and sophisticated in a resort-like setting. The Goodyear family have been caretakers for nearly 100 years with a mission committed to preservation and stewardship of the natural environment. Longleaf Pine trees have been planted with grasslands to create the habitat for many rare and endangered species of birds. Small birding boxes have been strategically placed along the golf course where bluebirds, wood ducks and more have been studied by national groups and are maintained by residents, with the guidance of local environmentalists.
Walking Trails We will take a walking trail that circles a beautiful lake which has a lush array of plant and animal life. This particular path has a visual of the resident Bald Eagles nest and you will most certainly see the parents circling the nest.
Resident and Breeding Birds: Bald Eagles, Cormorants, Swallow-tailed Kite, Hawks, Bluebirds, and Wood Ducks. Coffee will be served afterwards in the Country Club overlooking the scenic lake. Easy walk.
