The Palmetto Paddlers has adopted the "Radio Towers" landing (also known as "Gardendale" or the "SCE&G Throw-In") in West Columbia. To get to the landing, start from the Circle K/ 76 station at the Bush River Rd. exit from I-20. From there, go .8 miles along Bush River Rd. away from Columbia to Garden Valley Lane (SC-32-938), turn left, go .3 miles, passing the railroad tracks and the Gardendale Swim and Racquet Club, until the road makes a 90 degree right turn. You will see the SCE&G sign for the landing on the left just after this bend in the road. The Adopt-a-Landing Program is housed in SC DNR's Land, Water and Conservation Division as part of its River Conservation Program. Cleanups are in February, June (which is American Rivers Month), and September as part of Beach Sweep/River Sweep. SC DNR, in recognition of involvement in the program, will erect a sign at the landing with Palmetto Paddlers' name. Thanks to Robin and Dianne for doing the paperwork. [Map]. Please pick up some trash every time you visit this landing so we can keep it clean.
