Arctic Nesting Migratory Shorebirds in South Carolina
Coastal Discovery Museum 70 Honey Horn Drive, Hilton Head Island, SC 29926
The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Felicia Sanders on March 3 at 2 pm for this virtual presentation. Many shorebirds undertake fantastic migrations each year from nesting grounds in the Artic to wintering sites as far south as the southern tip of South America. This presentation will highlight shorebird natural history from nesting sites on the tundra, to wintering sites on beaches in South Carolina and the incredible flights that shorebirds make each year to reach these destinations.
Sanders is with the SCDNR and leads the state Shorebird Program. Project goals include conservation of important shorebird habitat for nesting and migration.
Cost is $5 for this virtual program and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223.
