South Carolina Science Council

Next week, the education department from the Francis Beidler Forest Audubon Center will be manning a booth at the South Carolina Science Council conference in Myrtle Beach. A copy of the program shows a variety of science-related workshops and lessons that can improve the quality of science instruction in South Carolina classrooms. We hope to draw attention to the unique educational opportunities in the natural classroom located in Four Holes Swamp!

Contrary to the office rumor mill, we did sign up because Jeff Corwin would be a guest speaker at the conference! Besides, Jeff Corwin has never been to the internationally-recognized, old-growth, cypress-tupelo swamp that we get to call our office!

Visit us at the Francis Beidler Forest! Then you too can say that you've done something that Jeff Corwin has never done.
