    Details: Following the round robin networking session, participants will join Saluda Shoals Park Rangers Zach Pensa and Rachel Kennerly to learn the basic principles of nature interpretation while enjoying a nature walk and dip-netting experience through the Park's Wetland Ecology program. Rangers Zach and Rachel will share techniques such as sensory storytelling, equipment, and helpful tips for outdoor safety and leading a nature walk with students.

    “You don’t have to go to a park to take a nature walk with students,” says Ranger Rachel. “I want to provide Meetup participants with a behind-the-scenes glimpse into Saluda Shoals Park’s programs while also sharing tools and techniques other educators can use any time kids are outside.”

    Approximately 7,000 students participate in Saluda Shoals Park’s Wetland Ecology program each year.

    Agenda:
    Round Robin Announcements: 3:30-4:00
    Nature Walks and Dip Netting: 4:00-4:45
    Refreshments and Networking: 4:45-5:00

    Register: RSVP to Jane Hiller at jane.hiller@sonoco.com or register online.  This helps us set up the room and provide refreshments for the right number of people!

    Agenda: Meetups begin with a facilitated round-robin session where participants share updates and announcements. Come prepared to announce any program dates, opportunities for partnership, or information requests (max 5 minutes per person).  Following the round-robin, educators are invited to mix-n-mingle over refreshments. 

    Schedule: Meetups are typically held on the second Tuesday of each month, alternating between 8am and 3:30pm.  Locations and timings may vary, so be sure to check the website for the next event!
