Albemarle Corporation invited Orangeburg County's Keep America Beautiful board members to tour their latest project...a walking trail and outdoor classroom that they are constructing on acreage adjacent to their Orangeburg SC plant.
Not far along the trail they did run into a local 'critter' a five foot canebrake rattlesnake! While the trail is patroled to ensure safety for the students and visitors it was very apparent that the wildlife is indeed protected and in place on this site. There was also a whitetail deer spotted further along.
YOU ARE HERE!
You can't get lost...there are kiosks along the trails with maps to help you identify the area.
Learning kiosks provide valuable information on local plans & wildlife along the trails...(desgined by David Andrews, employeed at Albemarle)...there is also an outdoor classroom complete with overhead fans for students to take a break and discuss the sights.
While Albemarle's Orangeburg plant has been focusing on 'green' initiatives for over 20 years, this recent accomplishment is a valuable asset to our community. Albemarle demonstrates a corporate commitment to environmental stewardship in many ways...in addition to being a member of the Wildlife Habitat Council, they are also active in the American Chemistry Council's Responsible Care program.
Take time to visit Albemarles 100 Acre Wood trail...you will be amazed at what you find along the way...
