Cultural History of Wetlands in SC

Webinar hosted by NIWB Coastal Training Program

Human communities and wetlands have been interconnected throughout history. Society and culture have been shaped by wetlands and humans have impacted wetlands in turn. This is especially true in coastal South Carolina where wetlands are a dominant feature of the landscape and have played an integral role in the lives of residents, from the earliest indigenous people to the present day. In this two-part webinar series, participants will (1) gain an overview of human – wetland interactions throughout history (2) learn about cultural connections to wetland ecosystems (3) recognize the diverse stakeholders that rely on wetlands in coastal SC and the role of wetland services in society and (4) best practices for stakeholder engagement in wetland management.
