RPA Certified Field School Highlight: Coastal Carolina University
The Anne Tilghman Boyce Coastal Reserve (ATBCR), including a portion of Waties Island, is located on the northeast coast of South Carolina, just above Cherry Grove beach. Students and faculty at Coastal Carolina University regularly use a portion of the Reserve owned by the Coastal Educational Foundation, a private, non-profit support component of CCU. Classes, laboratories and independent research projects are conducted on the property by both undergraduate and graduate students, faculty and staff. In addition, field workshops for precollege classes (K-12) and adult groups are led by a marine science educator.
