The Santee Birding and Nature Festival, April 25 through April 27, is fast approaching and registration is open.
Sponsored by a variety of non-profit groups, community groups, and State and Federal agencies, as well as individual sponsors, the festival has an abundant array of wildlife-oriented field trips and workshops running throughout the weekend — – a little something for everyone to experience. The festival celebrates the natural beauty of South Carolina by providing wildlife watching and natural history opportunities throughout the midlands and beyond. Field trips are being offered all throughout the Santee Region. From the blackwater swamps and Carolina Bays of the midlands, to the inlets and estuaries of the coast, there will be a variety of habitats to experience and explore.
The mission of the Santee Birding and Nature Festival is to increase awareness of our national and state heritage in natural areas and provide wildlife watching opportunities in midland South Carolina. Detailed information on the festival can be found at www.santeebirdingfestival.com.
