Coastal Explorations Series offers Lowcountry learning, adventure opportunities

The S.C. Department of Natural Resources has launched the fifth year of the Coastal Explorations Series. Interested individuals may view the Spring 2011 Calendar and register for events online.

The Coastal Explorations Series aims to foster the relationship between the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the public while increasing stewardship of South Carolina’s natural resources. Events largely highlight managed properties, projects, and expertise of staff of the DNR and partnering agencies and organizations. All programs are offered for free to the general public. All offerings contain both a lecture and field component and include topics such as winter shorebirds, rice cultivation, impoundment management, life history of horseshoe crabs and wetland night sounds.

As part of the Coastal Explorations Series spring 2011 lineup, an "Introduction to Wildlife Photography Workshop" will be held in the Ashepoo Combahee Edisto (ACE) River Basin. This is a one-day workshop held free of charge with professionals from the South Carolina Wildlife Magazine.

Participants are required to have a SLR (single-lens reflex) camera and some experience with photography, although certainly beginners are welcome. Registration is open until Feb. 16. Once registration is closed participants will be selected via a random drawing and notified by Feb. 18.

Registration is required for all events via the website and opens 30 days in advance. Once registered, participants will receive directions and further event details at least one week prior to the offering. Please direct any questions to the following: Kim Counts, DNR//ACE Basin NERR, (843) 953-9354 or countsk@dnr.sc.gov
