Most of us on Kiawah have been lucky enough to see the flocks of gorgeous Black Skimmers on the ends of our island, or the awesome sight of these birds flying low over the ocean skimming the water with their beaks to catch fish. Here is an opportunity to learn more about these amazing birds.  See Zoom link below.

The Kiawah Island Shorebird Stewardship Program is pleased to host their final Zoom presentation of the season.

You are invited to attend on Wednesday, June 15 at 10:00 a.m.
