The work of human hands: Shaping our landscape past, present and future.
Friends of Coastal South Carolina hosts a thought provoking evening with Patrick McMillan. Renowned naturalists and host of the award winning PBS series, Expeditions, Patrick McMillan brings a unique perspective to the challenges of conservation in our time and imparts an equally unique understanding of how we shape our world. The evening is a benefit to support loggerhead sea turtle conservation efforts on Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge. Cape Romain is the most important breeding ground for loggerhead sea turtles north of Florida. The nest protection work this benefit supports results in hundreds of thousands of hatchling turtles, who would not otherwise survive, making it to the sea.
