Lowcountry Outdoors accepted an invitation to address the ladies of the Mayfield Garden Club on Tuesday Jan. 18 in a historic home located in downtown Walterboro. The meeting began with refreshments like shrimp paste and baked brie on crackers and included a caramel cake with coffee or soft drinks. A slideshow of Colleton county lands, birds, insects and more set the mood for the program. Speaking about conservation easements and the ACE Basin, it was not hard to accent the fact that our Lowcountry outdoors are special. Questions about forestry practices were raised, particularly the logging of hardwood bottomlands, and it was clear that this group cared about the surroundings in their home area. Further questions were raised about a proposed SCE&G landfill near Round O that Colleton County is courting. After a "do you know" slideshow, the Mayfield Garden Club and President Carol Hinson honored the speaker with a gift, a book titled Plantations of Saint Bartholomew's Parish.
