Friends of Congaree Swamp will hold its Annual Oyster Roast and Business meeting on Sunday, October 27, 2019, at Congaree National Park. The event will help celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of the first organized hikes into the park—a Sierra Club outing on September 25, 1969.
Registration will begin at 2 p.m., followed by a memorial hike. We will reconvene for the business meeting, during which LaBruce Alexander, John Cely, Ann Timberlake and others will share their first hike experiences at Congaree Swamp.
After the business meeting, the Oyster Bar will serve roast oysters beginning at 5 p.m. Friends members will provide beverages, chili, vegetarian selections, and desserts.
