After a summer off, Cheves and I will be speakers at several events this fall that are open to the general public. The first is to be held on Friday, October 16 at 7 pm at the McClellanville Arts Council. This evening program will kick off a weekend of events by the Arts Council exploring the French Santee area within the Francis Marion National Forest. These will include walks and tours at Hampton Plantation and a paddle on Wambaw Creek. Additional information can be found at the McClellanville Arts Council website.
