Nicholas Wallover will give a presentation about shorebirds at 3 p.m. Oct. 15 at the Coastal Discovery Museum on Hilton Head Island.
Every year, tens of thousands of shorebirds descend in mass on South Carolina’s coast as part of migrations that span thousands of miles every year to nesting grounds as far as Alaska and the high Arctic, according to a museum news release. Many more will spend non-breeding months overwintering on our beaches, and a few species will nest along our coasts.
Those who attend Wallover's presentation can learn more about these birds and the role of communities in South Carolina in protecting this important part of our coastal heritage.
Wallover is the regional biologist for the ACE Basin National Estuarine Research Reserve and manager of the McKenzie Field Station at Bennett’s Point. This program is sponsored in part by the Kroger Foundation.
The Museum is at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head.
