DeBordieu & Hobcaw S.C.U.T.E. will hold a season kick-off meeting on Sunday, April 24 at 4:00 p.m. The location will be the back side patio of the Pavilion. This will be a chance for anyone interested in our project to come, learn and ask questions. Our project is one of 31 along the South Carolina coast volunteering under the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources. Our mission is to locate and protect the nests of loggerhead sea turtles, a federally threatened species on our 6 miles of beach.

Those new to the project and planning to attend, please send an email to Include name, email and cell phone number.
