From the maritime forest to the sea, the first annual Sullivan’s Island Earth Day Celebration will be fun and informative for the whole family! Join us for this collaborative initiative of Sullivan’s Island For All, Poe Library, Sullivan’s Island Bird Banding Station, and The Island Turtle Team!
An Earth Day Village at the 1920 I’On Park (in front of Poe Library) will feature: nature-themed face painting, bingo, puzzle challenges, kids art projects, scavenger hunt, and more. Visit with members of Sullivan’s Island For All to talk about the Maritime Forest. Check in with The Island Turtle Team to learn how this year’s turtle nesting season is going. Tour our Community Garden
and Monarch Butterfly Art Exhibit to learn more about the life cycle of monarchs.
Join local author Pamela Brownstein in the Poe Library as she shares her book of haikus inspired by life in the Lowcountry, then create your own nature-inspired haiku and illustrate it with thumbprint art!
The Earth Day Village activities are Free. Unlimited Participants. Please bring your Reusable Water Bottle. Food and drink available in nearby Sullivan’s Island restaurants.
At Station 16, you can watch a live bird banding demonstration by The Sullivan’s Island Bird Banding Station or take a guided Maritime Forest Nature Walk by Sullivan’s Island For All. Participation is free, but space is limited and pre-registration is required.
This event is coordinated by Sullivan’s Island For All, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the incredible gift of the 190-acre Maritime Forest on Sullivan’s Island, put into a public land trust in 1991, for the benefit, education, and enjoyment of all.
