Bluffton, SC – The Palmetto Bluff Conservancy hosted the inaugural “Buffalo Trail Run” at Palmetto Bluff Plantation this morning. Members, staff and guests participated in a 10K, 30K or 50K trail run through parts of the property normally off limits to everyone but staff. Special thanks to Conservancy Director Jay Walea, who let me jump into the back of his ATV for a ride along the course of a 10K loop normally reserved for Wild Turkey and White Tail Deer. “It’s the Conservancy’s main charge to develop programs where people and nature can coexist in harmony,” Walea said. He has managed wildlife activities on the 20,000 acre property for 26 years. For more, look for my story in the November issue of Hilton Head Monthly Magazine.
