As a graduate of the Coastal Master Naturalist Program through the Clemson University Cooperative Extension, I would like to share my excitement and enthusiasm about the many wonders of nature that can be enjoyed and experienced in the lowcountry. Through this monthly column, I will share my observations, sightings, and characteristics about a variety of nature topics such as common insects, birds, butterflies, wildflowers, plants and more. Basically, anything in nature is fair game to learn about and explore. I also encourage you to share your observations and experiences so that we can learn about our natural world together. Please feel free to send in pictures and/or information of anything you find interesting by emailing me, Peggy Potts, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
