Fall is approaching, but we sure hope we can avoid the hurricanes this year! However, now with Seabrook Island Birder (SIB) virtual programs, not only can we still be active while social distancing, we might even be able to hold the events if we are visited by bad weather.
Seabrook Island Birders (SIB) has scheduled another two “Virtual Movie Matinees” and an Evening Program using Zoom during the month of September! And the best part is you don’t even have to be on Seabrook Island to join!
Once you register, we will send you a link the day prior to each event to allow you to access our Zoom live video. We will open each event with introductions and a little social time, watch the movie or presentation together (generally an hour), and finish with a short discussion to get your feedback and answer questions.
Sign up for one, two or all three of our events, then plan to get comfy in your favorite chair with snacks and beverages of your choice to enjoy our gathering!
