Aiken Driving Club at Silver Bluff

On Sunday, November 4, Silver Bluff Audubon Center & Sanctuary hosted the Aiken Driving Club for its annual fall pleasure ride.

Nearly 30 horse and carriages participated in the event, with some arriving from as far away as Colorado and Florida. A trail route that was over 8 miles in length featured views of the Savannah River, majestic longleaf and loblolly pine forests, hardwood bottomlands, and open fields. The image shows Dr. Joan Gariboldi driving her team.

A potluck luncheon was served afterwards along with remarks by Norman Brunswig, Dan Connelly (shown in image), and Paul Koehler of Audubon South Carolina. Perfect weather was an added blessing to this extraordinary day that showcased the beautiful property and the program opportunities at Silver Bluff.
