Charleston County School of the Arts

Today, the Charleston County School of the Arts wrapped up two days of visits to the Audubon Center at the Francis Beidler Forest.

In additon to the boardwalk tour, students learned about taxonomy and the use of Greek and Latin in scientific naming. Each student created an animal with characteristics that would help it be successful in the swamp environment. After creating their creature, each student gave their creature a scientific name using Latin and Greek stems provided by the education staff.

Some fascinating creatures appeared at the Francis Beidler Forest during the last two days!
