4th Annual Moth Night

Saturday, July 20, 2019 - 8:30pm until 10:00pm

Join us during National Moth Week as we learn about the diversity of moths (and surprising uniqueness and beauty), the important roles they play in the environment and local efforts to learn more about them with Lenny Lampel, Natural Resources Coordinator for Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation. After a brief indoor presentation, we’ll step out into the darkness to observe a variety of moths with the aid of black lights, sheets, and specialized baits. Get up close to these incredible jewels of the night! Bring a flashlight and comfortable shoes for walking in the nighttime woods. No registration is required. This is a family-friendly event. Cost: Free for Greenway members | $5 for non-Greenway members. Learn more about National Moth Week here.  Questions? Contact Dr. Michelle Evans, (803) 548-7255 or via  e-mail.  For more details about this event, please visit the website here.

In 1995, this 2,100 acre nature preserve was dedicated to the public to serve as a natural buffer from urban development and a place for countless activities – from hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding, to picnics, kayaking and more. The Greenway holds a wealth of cultural resources, including the historic Nation Ford Road, which was part of the Great Philadelphia Wagon Road, a pathway that was used by Native Americans, European settlers, Revolutionary and Civil War soldiers, traders and trappers for hundreds of years. In addition, the Greenway contains two circa-1800 log cabins, a dairy barn built in 1946 and the site of the Garrison-Webb gristmill for which Fort Mill is named. A part of Leroy Springs & Company,  Inc. and a site on the SC Ag + Art Tour
