On Wednesday, April 22, in conjunction with the current exhibit, Environmental Impact, Brookgreen Gardens will host a forum to discuss the work of area organizations, businesses, and individuals that clean-up, re-plant, and find new ways to protect and preserve our environment. The program is at 3 p.m. in the Lowcountry Center Auditorium and is free with garden admission.
The speakers include representatives from the North Inlet-Winyah Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, Santee Cooper, SC Environmental Law Project, Waccamaw Riverkeepers, and Waccamaw National Wildlife Refuge. The forum and Environmental Impact are sponsored by the Waccamaw Community Foundation and Green Assets, Inc.

Environmental Impact includes 75 works of art by 38 artists from seven countries. Their works present powerful messages about the environment as shown in paintings, prints, sculpture, drawings, and photographs. Environmental Impact is produced by David J. Wagner, LLC, David J.
