Naturalist 101 Series
May – November 2017
Monthly Lecture and Field Trip
Introducing Naturalist 101, a seven-month series designed for residents and coastal enthusiasts. With these hands-on seasonal programs, you’ll discover what makes Georgia’s coast so special and how you can make a difference for species across our 100 miles.
From May through November, One Hundred Miles will partner with local researchers and coastal leaders to host a monthly lecture and corresponding field trip. Each month focuses on a different theme:
May – Sharing the Beach with Shorebirds • June – Bee Inspired: All About Bees • July – Loggerhead-lines: Conserving Georgia’s Sea Turtles • August – Our Sandy Shore: Georgia Barrier Island Dynamics • September – Hooray for Herps: Reptiles and Amphibians • October – Under the Sea: Sustainable Fisheries • November – Branching Out: Longleaf Pine Ecosystem
Monthly lectures are free, with field trips offered at low cost; participants can pick and choose to attend the programs that interest them most – or sign up for the entire series at a reduced rate. We can’t wait to explore the coast with you!
