Wednesday Event

Last July a flood wiped away most of the South Carolina Botanical Garden’s nature trails and bridges. But thanks largely to Clemson University architecture students who spent much of the past nine months rebuilding the bridges, trails and signs, the garden is fully operational and back to normal. Four of those students will be at the garden at 10 a.m. by the Hunt cabin to discuss the extent of the work and give a personalized tour of the new bridges and signs they built.
