Native American Lifeways:
Learn interesting insights on the lifeways and strategic roles Native Americans played in the economy and welfare of the Carolina colony and later periods while talking a walk on the beautiful trails of this historical park. You'll also learn how historic resources of the park are relevant to the lives and culture of Native peoples today, including the Cherokees, Catawbas, and other living groups.
 
Natural History:
Walk with us and help identify some of the more conspicuous, and perhaps not so conspicuous, plants and animals that occur at the History Park. We’ll discuss how terrain, soils and the general “lay of the land” affect animals, insects, plant distribution and abundance.
 
All tours are led by National Park Service trained volunteers and are about 2 miles (60 to 90 minutes).

We recommend you wear comfortable shoes and bring a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent and plenty of water.

2018 May Chamber Breakfast
May 22nd
7:30 AM - 9 AM

BREAKFAST PROVIDED BY:


SPEAKER: 

THE RIVER ALLIANCE CEO, MIKE DAWSON

In the summer of 1994, local leaders asked Mike Dawson, then a serving Colonel of Infantry in the U.S. Army, to create an organization that could unlock the potential of Columbia South Carolina’s 90 miles of rivers. This resulting structure, based on citizen participation and close relationships with local governments, is an effective catalyst for change.

Mike grew up in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and graduated from the Georgia Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering.  Later, he earned a Master of Science in Systems Technology from the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, California and Master of Arts in Strategy and Policy from the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island. In his free time, Mike runs, paddles, and works on an old Tudor house in Five Points in downtown Columbia. He is a founding member of the Wales Garden Neighborhood Association, a member of the Five Points Rotary Club and a member of the Board of Directors of the Central Midlands Council of Governments Environmental Planning Advisory Committee, the Central Midlands Development Corp. and the Waterfront Center in Washington, DC.
