The Charleston County Park and Recreation’s Education team, in partnership with Community Recreation, implemented a series of Junior Naturalists programs for students from E B Ellington in March of this year. Programs occurred directly after school on Tuesdays at the Caw Caw Interpretive Center and topics centered around the natural history found in the park. Classes ranged from an in-depth study of plants, to animal signs, birding, and an exploration of wetlands and the animals that call them home. In addition to learning natural history, students also grew their critical thinking skills through exploratory learning and even engaged in artistic activities such as nature journaling to form lasting connections to the natural world.
This program series was possible because the Coastal Master Naturalists Association sees the value in supporting the next generation of naturalists and generously supported all children in attending all classes at no cost. This program series highlights how community may be built around a shared interest in the nature and how we can foster the next generation of environmental stewards through education and exploration.

I wanted to share that the first Jr. Naturalist program with EB Ellington Elementary was a success! This program series continues through early April. I thought you’d like to see some photos from yesterday’s program “Animal Sleuths.” We are grateful for the funding and partnership with the Coastal Master Naturalist Association!

Wanted to share a few pictures from our trip to Caw Caw today—our Junior Naturalist Program off to a great start. Kids had a great time and learned a lot. Jessie did an outstanding job keeping it fun and interesting!! I am sorry I did not catch the name of the other programmer but she was a wealth of knowledge—y’all know your stuff!!! Looking forward to the rest of the program—thank you so much!!!!
