Arctic Nesting Migratory Shorebirds in South Carolina
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-
