Earlier today, Beaufort’s Higher Ground Outfitters presented a check to Friends of Hunting Island for the proceeds raised during the 9th Annual Paddlefest kayak and canoe race at Hunting Island State Park.
Pictured (from l to r) are Jon Greene, President of Friends of Hunting Island, Tim Lovett, Owner of Higher Ground Outfitters, and Jeff Atkins, Park Manager of Hunting Island State Park.
The proceeds…all $1329.00 of it, will be going to the Park’s Discover Carolina Program.
The Discover Carolina Program is the SC State Parks education initiative that actually puts the classroom at the Park and works with local schools toward fusing statewide resources with state academic standards. Discover Carolina provides rare experiences that reinforce classroom lessons for 3rd, 5th, and 7th grade students in Beaufort.
