Rally to stop a Kiawah development, and enjoy some oysters

Focusing on environmental activism and, namely, the 50 proposed homes for the southern end of Kiawah Island, the Coastal Conservation League is holding an oyster roast where a short film will be shown.

Here's a bit about the event from the league:

Batik artist, Mary Edna Fraser and Dr. Orrin Pilkey, Professor of Earth and Ocean Sciences at Duke University, have created a short film on the proposed 50 new homes to be built on beachfront property at the south end of Kiawah Island near Capt. Sam's Inlet. The film includes aerial photos of the beach, and interviews with Dr. Pilkey and Nancy Vinson, Coastal Conservation League's Program Director for Air and Water Quality.

Mary Edna is opening her studio for a tour and the film screening. Dive into roasted oysters direct from Bowens Island and listen to local musicians play under the stars. And, become an activist and help the League stop this inappropriate development.
