Plantation Sportsmen Series: ACE Basin History and Ecology
This two-part program includes dinner in the dining room at Hobcaw House, as Mr. and Mrs. Baruch's guests and hear a guest speaker discuss the history and ecology of the area between Charleston and Beaufort, the watershed of the Ashepoo, Combahee and Edisto Rivers. On Friday, we travel on our Hobcaw bus to Nemours Plantation and its associated properties as guests of the Nemours Wildlife Foundation, established by the late Eugene DuPont, III and his family. Much like Hobcaw Barony, the 9,800-acre plantation is dedicated to research, education and stewardship while researching its plantation history and preserving the duPont legacy. A wagon ride to observe the forest and wetlands and a lunch at the main house are included. Reservations are required, www.hobcawbarony.org.
