ETV Host and Naturalist Patrick McMillan to lead fall tour of the refuge The Friends of Carolina Sandhills NWR are pleased to announce that ETV host and naturalist Patrick McMillan will lead a guided nature walk on the refuge on Saturday, October 12, 2013. 

Patrick’s true passion is botany and what better season to lead a tour of the refuge than fall?  The 
Friends have dubbed this event “Wild about Wildflowers.”  This event is FREE with your paid 
membership, so make sure your membership is up to date.  Invite your friends and neighbors to 
come and see the many wild treasures to be found at this special place.  Reservations are required 
and the tour will fill-up quickly, so call and save your spot today (843/335-8350).

Patrick is the host, co-creator, and writer of the popular, Emmy-award winning ETV nature program Expeditions with Patrick McMillan.  For over 20 years Patrick has worked as a professional naturalist, biologist and educator. His range of experience has concentrated on botany (plant science) though he is also well-respected through his work in ichthyology, herpetology, and mammalogy.  Patrick is a professional naturalist, faculty member of the School of Agriculture, Forestry and Environmental Science at Clemson University, and director of the South Carolina Botanical Garden.  Patrick received his BS in Biology from the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill and his PhD in Biological Sciences from Clemson University.  If you are unfamiliar with Patrick,

Virtual Hiking Trails

While the published hiking trails at CSNWR are wonderful ways to observe nature, we've documented additional trails that are off the beaten path.  These trails are unmarked so you will either need to employ the use of a GPS app such as EveryTrail or print a copy of the guide and use your compass.  These trails promise to bring you to some of the more remote areas and features of the refuge.  Remember - leave only footprints and take only pictures.
