LANDRUM—Conserving Carolina and the Landrum Library are inviting the community to a free lecture entitled, “Flora of Glassy Mountain Heritage Preserve,” presented by Dan Whitten, president of the South Carolina Native Plant Society

The program will be held on Tuesday, July 16 at 6 p.m. at the Landrum Library, located at 111 East Asbury Drive Landrum. 

The South Carolina Department of Natural Resources acquired the Glassy Mountain Heritage Preserve on May 8, 1990. The preserve covers 65 acres and is located near Pickens, South Carolina. One of only a few Piedmont Monadnocks in South Carolina, this unusual landform provides a spectacular view and harbors several rare plant species. Dan will show some of the views and plants that make this such a special place in South Carolina.
