Trip Report - Pendleton High School "Coastal Ecology Field Experience", 2015

Dear SCW Magazine:

I have been a fan for many years. I recently noticed your "Trip Report" feature and that gave me the idea to contact you. I'm an agricultural education instructor at Pendleton High School. For the past four years I have provided what I call a "Coastal Ecology Field Experience" for my Wildlife Management/Environmental Natural Resources students. With the help and friendship of an excellent SCDNR wildlife technician and education specialist, Mr. Jim Lee, and many others, we have created a life-changing experience for these students.
