The SEWEE Association's 2014 Annual Meeting will be held on Saturday, March 29, at Hasty Point Plantation in Georgetown, S.C. This is no ordinary meeting, in fact this year it's BYOK (bring your own kayak).
Members, as well as nonmembers, are cordially invited to spend a day exploring the beauty of Hasty Point Plantation and to participate in our 2014 Climate Change Symposium. The day will include guided walks through spectacular longleaf pine forest and time to explore the Pee Dee River from the Hasty Point dock. This is a rare opportunity to explore this unique and beautiful place.
The event will feature some dynamic guests coming to share the most current information on the impacts of climate change on our coastal national wildlife refuges and forest as well as our coastal communities. This will not be the “same old discussion.” Speakers will do their best to bring the impacts of this daunting issue, and the actions needed to effect change, to a very real and local level. Presenters include Richard Devoe, Executive Director S.C. Sea Grant Consortium and Dr. Elizabeth Fly, Coastal Climate Extension Specialist S.C. Sea Grant Consortium, Dr. Maria Whitehead, Project Director for the Nature Conservancy, and Hamilton Davis, Director of Climate and Energy for the South Carolina Coastal Conservation League.
Pre-registration required by March 24. Space for outings is limited so register early, For registration information email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 843-697-7535. Tickets are $15 for members and $25 non-members (includes one year SEWEE Association membership). Luncheon and outings are included.
