Donation to SCNPS Helps Protect Rocky Shoals Spider Lily

Rocky Shoals Spider Lily

Through McCormick Taylor’s Charity Committee, Katie Ellis, a water resources designer in our Columbia, SC office, was able to donate funds to the South Carolina Native Plant Society (SCNPS), where she is an active member. SCNPS works with conservation partners to protect special places with rare plants, including a site with Rocky Shoals Spider Lily (Hymenocallis coronaria) in McCormick County, SC.

The Rocky Shoals Spider Lily is a rare plant that inhabits shoals and rapids in piedmont streams. With the donation, the Society was able to put the funds towards restoring and preserving the rare Rocky Shoals Spider Lily.
