Field Trip Friday: Edisto Beach State Park Environmental Interpretive Center

Obviously, we did not travel to South Carolina this week, but I couldn't resist re-posting from our beach trip last year.  I'll be fighting beach fever the rest of the weekend.

There were interactive things for kids to touch, listen and see.  Michael was really scared of this plastic crabs in one of the drawers.

This was a very cool interpretive center.  It was free and had tons of hands-on activities for kids of all ages.  We spent somewhere between an hour to an hour and a half here.  The staff was very friendly and answered my kids questions very thoroughly.  It was well worth the time to visit!
