State purchases Marion County wildlife habitat

WOODBURY — State and local officials celebrated Friday the state’s completed purchase of the Woodberry Wildlife Management Area in lower Marion County, which they said represents one of the largest habitat conservation purchases in Palmetto State history.

The 25,668 acre tract is located off of U.S. 378, near the point where the Great and Little Pee Dee Rivers meet.

“From an ecological standpoint, this is one of the most important acquisitions in the state’s history,” S.C. Department of Natural Resources Director Jon Frampton said. This is a tract of land that has significant cultural and historic value and really high wildlife diversity and plant diversity.” …

The land is home to such birds as the Kentucky warbler, rusty blackbird, Louisiana waterthrush, swallow-tailed kite, Swainson’s warbler and other animals such as bears and deer.
