A guide to nearly one hundred of South Carolina's natural areas
From the majestic Blue Ridge mountains to the sandy shores of the Atlantic coastline, the South Carolina Nature Viewing Guide leads its user on a tour through ninety-three of the state's most distinctive natural areas. The guide includes beautifully detailed descriptions of the featured sites, as well as maps, access information, nature viewing tips, and colorful, scenic photographs, which showcase selected sites for nature observation in South Carolina.
The locations on which the Nature Viewing Guide focuses were nominated by people from across the state, and final selections, along with technical support in the research and development of the guide, were responsibility of a panel of natural resources experts.
