Black River Charrette, post-event pictures
The ASLA South Carolina Chapter was invited by the National Park Service to participate in a design charrette for the new Black River Water Trail. The goal of the charrette was to provide master plans for two parks located along the water trail. Participants in the charrette worked on designs for the Hinds Canada Tract (near Kingstree, SC) and the Rocky Point Community Forest (Georgetown, SC). These sites will be part of the new Black River Water Trail and the design programming will include a new state park visitor center, lodging, camping, kayak launches, trails, and boardwalks.
A regional master plan for the water trail is underway by Earth Design. The charrette for these two parcels will be included in the work presented for the regional plan.
The corridor is also being studied by a Clemson University third-year landscape architecture studio taught by Lara Browning. The students participated in the charrette alongside professional volunteers.

Your ASLA South Carolina Chapter is updating 2022 events and needs member volunteers for committee involvement. This is a wonderful opportunity to expand your leadership and planning skills while also having a good time with fellow members. Learn more about SC Chapter Committees to get involved and reach out with questions and interest please. No prior experience required. It truly is an enriching and rewarding professional experience, and I owe a great thanks to the support and service of each of the SCASLA Executive Committee members and volunteers I proudly consider part of my ASLA extended family.
