LPB pre-emped our regularly scheduled LPB 2 programming on Thursday, April 22 at NOON (central) so students statewide can take part in a live interactive field trip to Congaree National Park in South Carolina on the 40th anniversary of Earth Day. The 60 minute trip is designed for upper elementary, middle and high school students to learn about the conservation and preservation of one of the oldest and largest tree canopies in the world!
Join host Bette Jamison and naturalist Rudy Mancke with special guests from the National Park Service and SC Department of Environmental Control (DHEC) as students make a virtual visit to this “Biosphere Reserve,” an international designation received because of the uniqueness of the Congaree National Park – a place of towering trees, primeval forest landscapes and diverse plant and animal life.
Share swamp stories, learn the history of this national landmark, and experience national and state champion trees and astonishing biodiversity as the largest remnant of old-growth floodplain forest remaining on our continent is explored. How to conserve the flood plan forest for all of us and future generations is discussed.
