What better way to end your work week than at the beach! The Eastern Section of EEASC, along with the South Carolina Marine Educators Association (SCMEA), invite you for a fun afternoon of beachcombing followed by fish printing at Folly Beach County Park! We’ll spend part of the time exploring beach treasures and then engage in the creative Japanese art form of gyokau, or fish printing.
Where: Folly Beach County Park (we will meet at the far end of the parking lot) located at 1100 W Ashley Ave, Folly Beach, SC 29439
To Bring/Wear: hat, sunscreen, refillable water bottle, comfortable walking shoes, an article of clothing to fish print (optional)*
Register by October 7th: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BXCP23Q
Details: We will meet at the far end of the Folly Beach County Park parking lot. Please tell the gate attendee that you are with the EEASC group and you won’t have to pay the entrance fee (EEASC will cover this cost). We will spend the first hour discovering different treasures along the far south end of the island and then spend the last hour engaging in some “gyotaku” (fish printing) using your finds or specimens we have for you to borrow. Light snacks and water will be provided.
*We will provide cloth bags for the fish printing session; however, if you would like to print on your own t-shirt, hat, canvas/cloth bag, please feel free to bring your item with you.
Questions can be sent to E.V. Bell, Eastern Section Director, EEASC .
