Ace Basin

Posted on Mar 07, 2018
 

Al Segars, well-known local veterinarian, recently retired from DNR in
November 2018, provided a great slideshow and talk about the Ace Basin, a
national treasure in our backyard. The Ace Basin covers 1.5 million acres of
mostly wetlands and is located along US 17 or Interstate 95 between Hilton
Head Island and Charleston. There are driving trails, hiking trails and boat
rides to see some of this land and the wild life and animals within. This
time of the year alligators are in mating season and out "bellowing"; Rosy
Spoonbills, white pelicans, snakes & bald eagles are just a few species you
might find. The park is free and makes for a nice morning, afternoon or
whole day. For more information:
