Have you resolved to get outdoors more, learn more, meet new people, do more for the environment, or have more adventures and fun in 2014? The Winyah Master Naturalist Course, offered by the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, can help you to achieve all of the goals and more!

Participants in this course develop naturalist observation and recording skills, learn basic biological and ecological concepts, learn to read the natural history of a landscape, analyze environmental issues, and cultivate good environmental stewardship practices while exploring the unique habitats of the South Carolina coast.
