Coastal Master Naturalists Association is pleased to host Dr. Richard Porcher presenting a lecture on “Wildflowers in the Low Country”. This will explore the wildflowers in the low country (and writing/updating the book).
Since the 1950s, seabird populations have declined by nearly 70 percent worldwide, and most South Carolina seabird populations are in decline, largely due to loss of habitat, according to the Department of Natural Resources, which named Crab Bank a protected seabird sanctuary in 2006. Crab Bank is one of just five protected rookeries statewide, has been a prime nesting spot for pelicans and more than a dozen other species of sea- and shorebirds for decades, but its high ground has been washed over at high tide since Tropical Storm Irma. No birds have nested there this year.
Please join us in supporting Crab Bank renourishment in any way that you can.
September 13, 2018 from 6-8pm is a free lecture at the Charleston Museum to get more information and show your support. Click here for details and to register to attend.
On Saturday, September 22nd, The South Carolina Native Plant Society and Magnolia Plantation & Gardens will present our 2018 Native Plant Forum – “Bringing Nature to Our Own Backyard“. From understanding how man and nature shaped the Lowcountry landscape to learning how to achieve harmony within and beyond our garden gates, this event offers something for everyone.
There are tours of the gardens, an exhibitor and vendor area and lectures to attend (advanced training hours for the lectures!)
