Love a Tree!
Thomas Fuller once said....."He that plants trees loves others besides himself."   Show your love for a special person in your life or celebrate a special occasion by adopting a tree in Doko Meadows.  What better time than Earth Day to put a lasting mark on your favorite small town.

The Doko Meadows Commemorative Tree Project.

Choose from five varieties of trees that will be planted in the park.

Hightower Willow Oak
October Glory Red Maple
Fruitless Sweet Gum
Chinese Pistache
Bald Cypress

Do Something Nice
your Mother...

Give Mother Nature a treat this Monday, April 22, when Earth Day rolls around.  Pick up some trash, plant a tree, recycle those plastic drink bottles or repurpose something you found in your attic.  All those are great ways to show respect and love for this beautiful planet we call home. 
Mother Nature will be so proud!

Tea Time!

The tea is brewing over at   the Blythewood Visitors Center.  Come and  enjoy delicious scones or unbelievably tasty bread pudding made by local caterer Mary Ellen Tobias and Linda and Richard Hewlette of The Company of OHS.  Sip a cup of blended tea from the Cornwallis House Tea Co. from Winnsboro, while you sit and chat with a friend.
The self-serve 'tea room' is  serving  every week Tuesday - Friday from
Noon - 5:00 pm.  Bring a friend and enjoy a 'spot of tea' each afternoon.
