We wanted to thank everyone for coming out to Party for the Pine 2017. In only its second year, this event drew 1,300 community members to the Boyd Tract of Weymouth Woods-Sandhills Nature Preserve to celebrate the longleaf pine forest and prescribed fire.

Please visit the Friends of Weymouth Woods Facebook Page and The Pilot article for additional photos and event recap.

We hope you are able to join us next spring. Thank you again!
