Beidler Forest in the News

Audubon South Carolina has been promoting the upcoming (Feb. 15-18, 2008) Great Back Yard Bird Count. Today, we got some help from the Post & Courier's article. Remember, you do not need to be a bird expert or spend more than 15 minutes in order to participate in this citizen science opportunity.

Previously, this blog has noted the unique mircohabitat referred to as a seep. Today's Post and Courier provides coverage of Dr. Dan Tufford and SCDNR's Steve Bennett and their continuing research into these poorly-understood wetlands. "There's something about the plumbing of these things that's going to be interesting to understand," Tufford said.
