Join Debbie Fisher for a discussion of the contribution of bees to a healthy ecosystem.

An avid nature-lover, Debbie Fisher, is fascinated by our amazing Earth, the living things with whom we share it, and their interconnections. As one of the founding members of the Charleston Area Beekeepers Association, Debbie delights in spreading her joy of bees and sharing information about the part bees play in contributing to a healthy, bio-diverse ecosystem. She will share insights about what science has learned over the past decade interacting with wild feral bees and how this information is influencing how we manage bees in the urban setting. 

This program is sponsored by the Kiawah Conservancy, Town of Kiawah Island, and Kiawah Island Community Association.

February 27 @ 3PM, The Sandcastle

Shorebirds undertake some of the world’s most incredible migrations, with nonstop flights that can last longer than a week and span continents. Many shorebird populations also happen to be rapidly declining! Learn how shorebirds are able to undertake their incredible migrations, and how these capabilities may make them susceptible to the effects of human-driven environmental change. In the process, Nathan Senner will also discuss shorebird migration along the coast of South Carolina and how local conservation activities can have big results.

This program is sponsored by the Kiawah Conservancy and Kiawah Island Community Association.
