Shorebird Stewardship Program

red knot - CopyThe Kiawah Island Shorebird Stewardship Program aims to protect and conserve Kiawah’s shorebirds through outreach and education.  This program aims to increase awareness on the importance of minimizing disturbance to shorebirds while they are feeding or resting on the beach.  

Stewards are present on the beach to share fun facts about the birds and why it is important to conserve and protect them.  If interested in volunteering in the Shorebird Stewardship Program, please email Bette Popillo.  Time commitments are flexible and training is provided.
