We depart tomorrow morning for Portland, Maine and the annual National Audubon Society Center Director/Education Director conference. Therefore, news from the Audubon Center at Francis Beidler Forest may be spotty or replaced with reports from Maine.

Although Danny has been downgraded to a tropical depression and will not affect South Carolina, it will be off the coast of Maine as we fly north. A quick check of the local forecast via a Twitter contact revealed that we'll be leaving hot, humid summer for damp, cool fall.

MaineBirder@TheSwampThing Beautiful week ahead. 60's-70's w/chance rain Tuesday. Nights 30's-40's. Dress fall-like.

This morning, as we enjoyed not having to wake to an alarm clock, we were jolted to full consciousness by a 3.2-earthquake centered 5 kilometers below Summerville. We hope that travel and the conference are not quite as bumpy!
