Spend the day in the swamp with NIWB-NERR's Storytime and Swamp Yoga 

Kids will have a blast with North Inlet Winyah Bay Natural Estuarine Reserve's (NIWB-NERR) Storytime and Swamp Yoga! During the event, reserve educational staff will read from two books, including A Day in a Forested Wetland by Kevin Kurtz and The Manatee Who Finds Mindfulness by Alyson Murphy.  

Afterwards, participate in swamp yoga. This fun yoga style encourages children to mix up traditional moves by imitating the movement of animals that live in the swamp. Plus, you'll be able to create your very own swamp-inspired craft to take home and commemorate the day.  

This event is free, but registration is required, so be sure to sign up while spots are still open. While the event is intended for children, an adult must be present throughout. Yoga poses will not be conducted by a licensed professional, so discretion is advised. 

Be sure to grab your yoga mats and listening ears for this fun and educational event. It's the perfect way to keep your mind and body  working over the summer!
