COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Richland County officials are giving visitors to a riverfront park a chance to see rare spider lilies without harming the plants.

The Richland County Conservation Commission is showing off new signs and a binocular viewer Thursday at Riverfront Park in Columbia.

The signs will give information about the lilies, which can be found at the park and only about 50 other locations in the world. The plants grow best in shallow, fast-moving water found on the rocky edges of small islands in the Broad and Saluda rivers.

The signs also advise park visitors to not to pick the rare flowers.
