Bulls Bay community agencies, organizations, businesses, and churches have come together to present the second annual Bulls Bay Nature Festival: From the Forest to the Sea.
The festival will be held on Saturday, May 17 at the Sewee Center and other sites around the town of Awendaw.
All day at the Sewee Center there will be live music, food, and a myriad of free activities for kids and adults including youth archery, fishing, and sweet-grass basket making workshops, standup paddle boarding, reptile and red wolf showings, nature art programs, the DNR fishing simulator, raptor flying demonstrations by The Center for Birds of Prey, family fishing in the ponds, and more.
Plus, kids who participate in more than three activities can win a prize.
In addition to the full day of fun at Sewee, there is still plenty of space available for free hikes, kayaking trips, auto-tours, and talks happening all throughout Francis Marion National Forest and Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge.
