Santee Birding and Nature Festival Registration is open

Registration is currently underway for the Santee Birding and Nature Festival.  Our own Coastal Master Naturalist Elizabeth Anderegg is helping organize this, and she’d love for all of us to be there and participate.  If you haven’t done this before, there are some incredible field trips offered.  There’s a photo contest (entries due April 7) and lots of exciting things planned. The purpose of the festival

“Is to increase awareness of our national and state heritage in natural areas and provide wildlife watching opportunities in midland South Carolina.  This festival is a partnership between local, state, and federal agencies and tourism groups.”

Dr. RIchard Porcher, author, Professor Emeritus of Biology at the Citadel, and CMNA guest speaker will be leading the keynote address on Friday night, April 25, 2014 at the Santee Cultural Arts Center in Santee, SC.
