Fill the Fish This Friday at Hobcaw Barony!
If you are a nature or history enthusiast, one of the best things to do in the Pawleys Island area, particularly when you are in DeBordieu Colony, is to visit the Hobcaw Barony Discovery Center!
If you’ve been to Hobcaw lately, you may have noticed the appearance of a large metal fish on the lawn!
The folks at Hobcaw Barony, located right between DeBordieu Colony and Georgetown, South Carolina, are very excited to have worked with NOAA’s Marine Debris Program to install this awesome sculpture that will be used to educate visitors on the detrimental effects of marine debris in our ocean and coasts, and what we can do as individuals to keep it out of the water.
But it needs a final touch- and YOU are invited to help! The sculpture is going to be filled with debris that volunteers have previously collected from North Inlet, one of our area’s most pristine and beautiful assets.
Come join the North Inlet-Winyah Bay Reserve and The Belle Baruch Foundation for the Filling of the Fish on Friday, September 22 at 11:00 AM, in celebration of National Estuaries Week.
The Hobcaw Barony Discovery Center will also be open from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM with great displays and information about the Reserve and marine debris, and we’ll also feed the real fish in the tank!
Please pass on this invitation! See you on Friday, September 22, at the Hobcaw Barony Discovery Center!
