    NAEP-SC Volunteer Day – SCDNR SCORE Program

    NAEP-SC is excited about our first annual volunteer day. As NAEP-SC’s first volunteer effort, we have partnered with SCDNR and the South Carolina Oyster Recycling and Enhancement (SCORE) program. Our volunteer efforts will help restore some of South Carolina’s precious oyster habitat. According to the SCORE website, “by working together, community members and biologists can restore oyster populations while 1) enhancing habitat for fish, shrimp, and crabs, 2) improving water quality of estuarine areas, and 3) informing and educating children, industry, and the general public.” More information about the SCORE program can be found at score.dnr.sc.gov. Please join us for this important way of giving back to both the environment and community. Depending on ultimate location, a happy hour event may follow.

    Please register so we can get an approximate headcount for SCDNR's site selection.

    TBD - Charleston, SC (Exact location will be determined based on need as we get closer to the event date.)
