Charleston AFB Conservation Day

Audubon South Carolina participated in Earth Day celebrations at the Charleston Air Force Base. The staff from the Francis Beidler Forest brought macroinvertebrate samples for the participating 5th graders to explore and identify. The students learned that the quantities of various species indicate the general water quality in the swamp. By the way, the water in the swamp is outstanding!
"This is the best and most fun station of all!" said one student. Of course, we agree.
