Barrier Island Ecology Adventure!
October 17, 2014
Registration Deadline: August 31, 2014

What we're doing...
Join us for an eco-tour of Charleston's salt marches and Capers Island State Heritage Preserve!

We'll explore the tidal creeks and discuss plant and animal species, adaptations, oyster bed communities, species diversity, and marsh ecology. A naturalist will pull crab and habitat traps, and will discuss what’s found in the traps.

We'll also spend time at Capers Island to learn about sediments, barrier island formation, sand dune function, loggerhead sea turtles, erosion and deposition, beach ecology, and the maritime forest.

Our adventure will start at 10:00 am and end around 2:30 pm. A cookout lunch on the beach of Capers Island will be provided (hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, cookies, and bottled water.)

Carolina Homeschooler members will have priority when registering for this event. I'll keep a waiting list and will add non-members if space is available. See our membership area for more information about becoming a member.

(NOTE: No drop-offs. Parents, or another adult, must attend this event with their children.)

Cost and what's included...
The cost for 2014-2015 members is $30 per person ages 3 and older (2 and under are free). This price includes all activities and lunch.

Non-members will be added if space is available for $40 per person, ages 3 and older.

Group Hotel...
If you need a hotel, we've reserved rooms with two queen beds, free Wi-Fi, and free breakfast. Rates are between $147 and $169 per night, depending on how many nights you want to stay. More information will be provided after you register.

Cancellation policy and refunds...
Payments are refundable only if I have a family on my waiting list to replace you, and a $50 per family cancellation fee will be deducted from all refunds. No replacements, roster changes, or refunds will be made after August 31, 2014.

Your signed registration form and waiver acknowledges that you understand and agree with my cancellation and refund policy.

This event may be cancelled if we don't have enough participants to meet the minimum required. If it's cancelled, you'll receive a full refund of payments made to me.
