The Friends of Hunting Island are announcing the second annual event, the Volksmarch or People’s Walk. The purpose of the walk is to enjoy the beauty of our state park while benefitting from the outdoor exercise. These walks are popular in many countries and Hunting Island is a spectacular location for a walk along the lagoon and through our maritime forest on several segments of the Hunting Island Trail System.
The event will be held on Saturday, March 28th and walkers can start from the Nature Center anytime from 9am to 3pm. The walk can be completed in 1.5 hours following signs along the paths.
A contribution of $10, to benefit the Discover Carolina Program for local schools, is requested of any walker who wants a participation pendant. So get your friends and neighbors together and join us on the Volksmarch!
Proceeds benefit the Discover Carolina Program for local schools

Discover Carolina provides students in the lowcountry an opportunity to study their local natural resources in a non-traditional environment while improving upon their academic skills. Local students are fortunate to transform Hunting Island into their own classroom.
