Swamp Cleanup - Beach Sweep/River Sweep

On September 15th, help the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest clean portions of Four Holes Swamp as we join the statewide Beach Sweep/River Sweep!

We will be cleaning the litter that has accumulated along US Hwy 78 where it crosses Four Holes Swamp.  The majority of the litter is lightweight beverage and food containers that will float downstream once the water level rises in the swamp.  We will be operating well off the road surface.

See a map of the cleanup area and our results of two years ago by clicking here.

We will meet at the County Services building parking lot in the fork of US Hwy 78 and US Hwy 178.  You will need to wear long sleeves and long pants, knee boots or closed shoes that can get wet, bug spray, and work gloves.

Please let us know in advance if you will participate.  Call 843-462-2150.
