Characterization of the Ashepoo-Combahee-Edisto (ACE) Basin, South Carolina

Education Programs

Education, training and outreach activities, designed to enhance public awareness of estuaries and coastal resources, are also conducted in the ACE Basin. An important aspect of this program is the linkage of education to science and stewardship. The ACE Basin NERR has also taken the lead in providing educational opportunities. The NERR coordinates with federal and state agencies; national education, scientific and environmental organizations; private industry; landowners; and special interest groups. The NERR education program is directly linked to the various satellite interpretive centers in the ACE Basin.
