Coastal WildScapes is partnering with the city of Midway to present a day-long seminar called “Cattails to Cordgrass: Bringing the Classroom to the Wetlands” at 9 a.m. Friday at the Coastal EMC office, 1265 S. Coastal Highway.
The seminar will be moderated by Carol Hoffman of the Odum School of Ecology at the University of Georgia and also will feature several guest speakers, including ecologists and biologists. They will cover topics related to species and natural communities associated with fresh- and saltwater habitats and discuss the possible creation of a wetland-education curriculum for the schools.
Amy Schuler, education coordinator for Coastal WildScapes, said all educators are welcome. Each educator will receive a Coastal WildScapes canvas bag with educational coastal brochures and information. The free seminar will include a lunch break and study materials and the afternoon session will take place after lunch at the Cay Creek Interpretive Center in Midway.
Coastal WildScapes is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving and restoring the biodiversity of southeastern coastal ecosystems.
Onsite registration begins promptly at 8:45 a.m. For more information, call 330-397-3932 or go to www.coastalwildscapes.org.
