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!

Monthly Artist Workshop/Field Trip
For centuries, artists have relied on the natural world as their muse and inspiration. In this same spirit, One Hundred Miles is thrilled to partner with local artists to continue our Nature and the Arts series with monthly workshops from October to December. Each session will provide techniques and instruction to help you view the majesty of our coast through the lens of nature.

October – Pottery: Traces of the Georgia Coast • November – Painting: Strokes of the Salt Marsh • December – Photography: Behind the Lens of Nature
