2008 For 12 weeks, Pam was enrolled in Clemson University’s ‘South Carolina Master Naturalist Program.’ It was a fun, overwhelming, more fun, hectic, consuming, and even more fun….. experience. Her training took place at the Low Country Institute on Spring Island in Beaufort County, SC. Chris Marsh, Tony Mills, Sarah Ernst and a host of past MN graduate volunteers led 28 participants through the wilds of the low country. May 5, 2008 culminated the journey to becoming Master Naturalists with an all inclusive field and written exam, a yummy pot luck lunch and….. Graduation!
