Environmental Education Association of South Carolina and South Carolina Marine Educators Association Regional Meet Ups
The Environmental Education Association of South Carolina (EEASC) and the South Carolina Marine Educators Association (SCMEA) are statewide, non-profit organizations designed to provide marine and environmental education opportunities and resources. The S.C. Sea Grant Consortium currently services on both boards of directors and is actively involved in coordinating outreach and enrichment activities.
Recently, EEASC and SCMEA have joined forces to host regional “meet ups” that are open to members and nonmembers of these organizations. The meet ups have three main purposes: 1) educating about our state’s natural resources, 2) providing a networking opportunity, and 3) highlighting both organizations. Most meet ups are offered free-of-charge based on support from SCMEA and EEASC and are open (with some exceptions) to members and nonmembers of either or both organizations. Please see below for our latest meet up opportunity and if you have questions please reach out to E.V. Bell.
