Join us for an eco-tour of Charleston's salt marches and Capers Island State Heritage Preserve!

We'll explore the tidal creeks and discuss plant and animal species, adaptations, oyster bed communities, species diversity, and marsh ecology. A naturalist will pull crab and habitat traps, and will discuss what’s found in the traps.

We'll also spend time at Capers Island to learn about sediments, barrier island formation, sand dune function, loggerhead sea turtles, erosion and deposition, beach ecology, and the maritime forest.

Our adventure will start at 10:00 am and end around 2:30 pm. A cookout lunch on the beach of Capers Island will be provided (hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, cookies, and bottled water.)

Carolina Homeschooler members will have priority when registering for this event. I'll keep a waiting list and will add non-members if space is available. See our membership area for more information about becoming a member.
