State of the Sound Symposium – Raising Awareness Through Research
Okatie, SC – The Port Royal Sound Foundation is excited to announce the first State of the Sound Symposium, sponsored by Dominion Energy & The Spring Island Trust and moderated by Dr. Chris Marsh. The event will be held virtually, via Zoom, on Friday, February 11th from 9:00am – 3:30pm. Several area experts from SC Department of Natural Resources and University of South Carolina-Beaufort will discuss what knowledge currently exists about the ecology of the Port Royal Sound.
