Caw Caw was once part of a series of rice fields and plantations during the 18th and 19th centuries. Rich in natural and cultural resources, groups can learn about natural history, plantation crops, and diverse ecosystems during their visit. The Natural Resource Management program will teach them how different conditions can attract animal and plant life to conservation sites. Students can also observe birds in the park, collect samples from habitats, learn about food webs, or dye their own t-shirts while learning about Carolina’s Indigo crop. Social studies programs explore South Carolina’s history with activities, discussions, and artifacts.
