Alfred says let's celebrate World Rivers Day, Sept. 25. Woof Woof!
The largest river in Calhoun County is the Congaree River named after the Congaree Indians. The Congaree is a short but wide river and flows for approximately 53 miles. It is the final outlet channel for the entire Lower Saluda and Lower Broad watersheds before it merges with the Wateree River just north of Lake Marion to form the Santee River. Alfred likes to go for a boat ride and watch the Ospreys fishing. Alfred prefers canoes especially if you do the paddling! Every once and a while, Alfred drops his line and scores a small bass. If you can enjoy a river soon, don't forget to keep your trash in the boat and maybe pick up some trash, too! If you have pictures of your trip on the Congaree or your catch, please share them with us on our Facebook page- SC Calhoun County Soil & Water Conservation District. Happy World Rivers Day!
