SC Marine Educators heading to the Upstate

UPSTATE — The South Carolina Marine Educators Association, a registered nonprofit organization and chapter of the National Marine Educators Association, will host its annual conference on [cointent_lockedcontent]Oct. 23-25 at Roper Mountain Science Center in Greenville.

Formed in 1988, SCMEA strives to improve and expand marine and watershed education opportunities throughout South Carolina. This yearly opportunity for educators, scientists, and concerned citizens to exchange ideas and learn about current topics and advancements in the field is a must for marine enthusiasts. You do not need to be a member to attend.

SCMEA offers high-quality and engaging marine education experiences in the form of lectures, field experiences, hands-on workshops, and opportunities for networking. Although hours from the ocean, the upstate lends an ideal setting for a conference whose theme is, “Watershed moments: from the mountains to the sea.” Presenters will highlight the connections between rivers that have their headwaters in the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean.

For two years running, Ripley’s Aquarium of Myrtle Beach has been a very generous sponsor. Additional sponsors for 2015 include Loggerhead Apparel, Swamp Rabbit Café, and REWA.
