Rivertowne Island

This is a 2 acre hammock island within the Rivertowne neighborhood, between Parkers Landing Rd and Horlbeck Creek. Hammock islands have been found by the SC Dept. of Natural Resources to be high in biological diversity. These areas provide habitat for hundreds of animal and plant species on a permanent and migratory basis. In particular, various bird species may utilize the property for feeding, nesting, and roosting sites due to its relative isolated location. Wading birds such as great blue herons, egrets, and night herons are bird species often found on hammock islands. Mammal species such as raccoons, otters, and deer have been observed using hammock islands. This privately-held island was preserved under a conservation easement in July 2011.
