SC Shorebird Research and Management Workshop As part of a grant received by the ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve, SCDNR conducted research to characterize important foraging areas along SC beaches for Piping Plover and Red Knots. We have identified habitat characteristics and created guidance to assist with identifying important habitats. During this webinar, Andrew Tweel with SCDNR will share results from the project and the guidance resource. Adam Bode with SCDHEC will provide insight on how to use this information in Beachfront Management Plans. Melissa Chaplin with USFWS will discuss human impacts and disturbance factors. Attendees will also participate in a brief activity about incorporating this information into outreach and management efforts. You will receive a full agenda and virtual meeting connection details prior to the meeting. Contact Abi Locatis Prochaska at with any questions. October 11, 2022 10 AM - 12 PM Click Here To Register
Adaptation Planning for Coastal Communities Coastal communities increasingly realize the need for adaptation strategies, but many are unsure where to begin. This intensive and interactive course provides individuals with a thorough grounding and practical skills for incorporating adaptation strategies into planning processes. Time in class is provided to practice applying what you learn, and opportunities for local collaboration and next steps are emphasized through discussion, participant activities, and local speakers and examples. The course will be tailored to focus on water and heat related climate challenges in coastal South Carolina, but skills gained can be applied to a variety of hazards.
