Programs Offered at Sesquicentennial State Park

 

COLUMBIA – Sesquicentennial State Park is offering a variety of nature programs in July.

 

The Wednesday morning programs – “Wild Wednesdays” – will focus on the many plants and animals found at the park.  Each week children will explore a different topic as they uncover the fascinating secrets of birds, insects, mammals and more through hands-on activities during this summer adventure. 

 

The program cost is $5 per child per week. This program is designed for children ages 6 to 10, and adults must accompany children.  A water bottle and sunscreen are recommended.

 

“Hike with a Ranger” will be held on Friday, July 5 & July 26 at 9 a.m.  This guided hike will focus on fitness, so participants must be able to walk 2 miles at a moderate pace. Participants will also learn more about the park, its trails, and other recreational opportunities available.

 

This program is free with park admission.  Admission is $5/adult, $3/children ages 6 – 15 and children 5 and under are free.  We offer a discounted admission of $3.25/person to South Carolina residents 65 or older or disabled and to active SC National Guard. This program is for all ages and the trail is stroller-friendly.

 

Pre-registration is required and space is limited.  Registration ends one day prior to each program.  Call (803) 788-2706 or e-mail sjensen@scprt.com.

 

Participants should meet at the park office and dress appropriately for being outdoors.  Insect repellent is recommended. Adults must accompany children 15 and under.

 

Sesquicentennial State Park is located on Two Notch Road in Northeast Columbia.  The park is open daily from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. with extended hours during Daylight Savings Time.  For more information on South Carolina State Parks, visit www.SouthCarolinaParks.com.
