Paddling Trail Work Day

Thursday, July 11, 2024
9:00 am12:00 pm

Come help us clear and protect one of the most historic areas in the United States of America on July 11. We are looking for about 50 South Carolinians who will join us in this incredible effort to clean the historic Lynches River in Florence County.

Participants are encouraged to bring loppers, saws, gloves, waders, and determination!

The historic and recreational values of the “Lynches River and Great Pee Dee River were recognized when a 66-mile section was designated The Revolutionary Rivers National Recreation Trail of South Carolina. The Lynches Scenic River designation extends approximately 111 river miles from US Highway 15 in Lee County to the confluence with the Great Pee Dee River in Florence County.
Along its winding course, the Lynches River passes through a varied landscape of pine uplands, farms, rural crossroads, and deep swamp forest. Special features include numerous small islands and sloughs, intermittent bluffs, bottomland hardwood wetlands, and artesian wells. Of particular historic interest is Snow's Island, an area of swampland formed in the convergence of Lynches River, Clark Creek and the Great Pee Dee River. Snow's Island is designated as a National Historic Landmark and listed in the National Register of Historic Places, because of its significance as a Revolutionary War campsite and retreat for General Francis Marion, the Swamp Fox, and his forces.“
