St. Croix Environmental Association Schedules Events for September

The St. Croix Environmental Association will hold a Migratory Bird Watch from 7-9 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 18, at Great Pond. Come celebrate the incredible journeys of migratory birds with guide Carol Cramer-Burke. International Migratory Bird Day is celebrated in the Caribbean on the second Saturday in October, but SEA is getting started early this year to take a look at the beautiful shorebirds that inhabit local wetlands and coastlines.

Please wear a hat and shoes that can get muddy; insect repellent and sunscreen are recommended. Bring binoculars and field guides if you have them. Register by calling 773-1989. It is free to SEA members, $10 for non-members.
SEA presents Biodiversity Film Fest: The Air We Breathe, a film that traces the damaging connection between suburban sprawl, automobiles, air pollution, and the increases in asthma and other respiratory diseases. The film will be shown from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 23, at UVI, Research and Extension Services Building – Room 133. It is free to all; no reservations are required. The Biodiversity Film Fest is in partnership with Marshall & Sterling Insurance and UVI Marine Advisory Service.
SEA will hold a free Snorkel Clinic from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, Sept. 25, at Southgate Coastal Reserve (between Cheeseburgers and Chenay Bay). Learn to snorkel or advance your skills. All ages are welcome. SEA will provide instruction, snorkel gear, a lifeguard and light refreshments. This is a great family activity. Reservations are not required but appreciated: 773-1989.
