Water animals the focus of Saturday program at Paris Mountain State Park

GREENVILLE, S.C. —  Part of  their Fourth Saturday series of events, Paris Mountain State Park will hold a program on water animals on Sat., May 26.

Interpretive Ranger Cathy Taylor will present a program at 1 p.m. called “Suited to Swim.” Many of Paris Mountain’s animals are adapted to life in or near water. Participants will help look for salamanders, frogs, ducks, and aquatic insects, as well as signs of beavers. Activities include wading into Mountain Creek, so participants may want to bring shoes that can get wet. The "Suited to Swim" program costs $7 per person, payable at the welcome station instead of admission. Meet at Park Center. Registration is required. Limit 30.
