South Carolina Wildlife magazine back issues free to teachers

South Carolina Wildlife magazine, a publication of the S.C. Department of Natural Resources, has long been recognized as one of the best conservation education tools available to help young people (and adults) learn about the importance of the environment and the value of our state’s natural resources. Generations of South Carolinians have grown up with teachers who decorated their bulletin boards with photographs or articles taken from the pages of South Carolina Wildlife (SCW) or drew from its articles to help teach science and natural history topics.
           
Right now, we have a large supply of back issues of SCW from the years 2008 and 2009.  These magazines are available to S.C. classroom teachers on a first-come, first serve basis. Unfortunately, like many state agencies, our agency has been deeply affected by budget cuts this year and we cannot ship or continue to store these magazines.
           
Instead, we plan to offer them for pick up in Columbia on June 14th at the Rosewood Storage Facility.  Teachers may come to Columbia and are welcome to pick up as many copies of each issue available to take and use.  Appointments are not needed and a large supply is available (35,000 copies of various ’08 & ’09 back issues).
           
Any magazines left over after the June 14 pickup event will have to be recycled, so teachers please take advantage of this opportunity to get them now.
           
The designated pick up spot is located approximately four miles from the S.C. State House in downtown Columbia at a storage facility on Rosewood Drive.  The location is convenient to all three Interstates via the I-77 loop exit at Bluff Road (the exit for the USC Stadium and Congaree National Park).  On the day of the pickup, DNR staff will be on-hand at the facility from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. to assist you with loading magazines into your vehicle.            

South Carolina's natural resources are essential for economic development and contribute nearly $30 billion and 230,000 jobs to the state's economy. Find out why Life's Better Outdoors.
