Eco Campers get new binoculars

in Community by

The Beaufort Conservation District recently purchased student binoculars with a Lowcountry RC&D Youth Grant.

Annually Lowcountry RC & D (Resource Conservation & Development) offer youth education grants through seed sales for wildlife habitats.

The conservation district staff takes school groups and Eco Campers on hikes and wanted to avoid asking children to borrow binoculars from their parents.

Some of the binoculars were used at Port Royal’s Birthday for the Birds in May.

This is Eco Camp’s 27th year. The theme is “Become an Eco Jedi,” and campers learn how our everyday actions can affect area water quality. Camp will be the last week in July and sign up is ongoing.
