[ARCHIVED] Natural and Cultural History at Your Fingertips

What if you could have your own personal guide join you on your park visit to describe the natural and cultural history of everything you see? Palmetto Islands County Park is making that happen. The park’s new interpretive cell phone tour allows visitors to access audio recordings, photos, and videos about Palmetto Islands.

At ten stops throughout the park, visitors can use their personal cell phones to access information about their surroundings. Verbal and pictorial details of locations such as Nature Island, the lookout tower, and the oyster restoration area provide an interesting overview of the parkland’s archaeology and anthropology. Hear information and sound clips about the unique history of the park and the area, as well as information on waterways and different environmental zones of the park. With the cell phone tour, plants and animals within the park become easier to spot. Interesting facts and tidbits will greatly enhance your park visit and open your eyes to natural inhabitants you may never have noticed. It’s like having an interpreter tour guide lead the way through the park!

Users who have smart phones with a barcode scanning application may also scan QR codes on site to access the tour and follow on-screen instructions to view select photos directly on their mobiles. Photos include plant, insect, and animal life in the park, as well as diagrams, maps, and more. There is no fee for the tour, but users are required to utilize their personal cell phone minutes.

At your next visit to Palmetto Islands, look for one of the ten tour signs to begin your tour through the park. Or, call (843) 405-5001 at any time and select a stop location.
