Tales from the Marsh Side: Hikes @ Fort Pulaski National Monument, Savannah

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2018

“Tales from the Marsh Side: A Day of Science” @ Fort Pulaski National Monument in Savannah, Sun. Oct. 14  2018.

Cost: An entrance fee of $7 per person is charged; ages 15 and under are free.

The day will highlight the natural resources of the park and its surrounding environment, with a focus on the ecological importance of the Georgia coast and the ways humans have always attempted to control this wild and wonderful place—with mixed results.

* 9:30AM: a ranger-led Shoreline Hike, where participants will discover what makes our little corner of the earth so unique and worth protecting.

* 1PM: Join a ranger for Man Versus Nature hike to learn about the natural and manmade forces at work on Cockspur Island, and how these forces will impact the park in the future.

*2PM: Terrapin Turtle Takeover, when a representative from the Terrapin Education Research Program of Savannah will bring a few of his turtle friends to teach us all about Diamondback Terrapins and how we can help protect these special residents of coastal Georgia.

Additional science activities for all ages will be taking place throughout the day.

Remember that even in October temperatures can be quite high in Georgia, and the heat can sneak up on you. Bring plenty of water. There is always a chance the trails will be muddy and buggy, so bring appropriate clothes, shoes and insect repellant. Please arrive 15 minutes before the scheduled departure time of your hike.

For more information, call (912) 786-5787 or visit www.nps.gov/fopu.

Savannah Children's Book Festival 2018

An annual fall tradition will not happen this year: The Savannah Children’s Book Festival.

For 14 years, the Savannah Children’s Book Festival has brought talented childrens’ authors to Forsyth Park – Mo Willems, Kwame Alexander, Kate DiCamillo, Lois Lowry, Carmen Agra Deedy, Jane O’Connor, Christopher Paul Curtis, Marc Brown, Tad Hills, Judy Schachner, Rosemary Wells, Victoria Kann & more – to inspire and ignite young readers and writers.

But this year, the beloved and well-attended festival is not happening due to lack of funding.

“Live Oak Public Libraries (LOPL) will not present Savannah Children’s Book Festival (SCBF) in 2018 because grant funding was not available from the primary sources that supported SCBF in prior years,” said Sarah Collier, Communications Coordinator at Live Oak Public Libraries.

That primary source of funding was a $85,000 grant from the City of Savannah Department of Cultural Affairs.

Why wasn’t the grant funded?

“Since the City of Savannah modified their funding priorities and processes and no longer funds one-day festivals, such as Savannah Children’s Book Festival, LOPL did not apply for the City of Savannah Department of Cultural Affairs grant,” Collier said.

SouthernMamas.com wants to the see this festival that promotes literacy, creativity and storytelling return in 2019. We started a Save The Children’s Book Festival Facebook group where supporters of the festival can stay informed about its future. Join it here. 

Organizers have not ruled out a return of the festival in 2019, pending funding. LOPL staff will plan next year’s budget in early 2019 and the future of the festival depends on what types of funding options are available for hosting the festival.

Collier said “LOPL will be planning next year’s budget in early 2019 and we will be reviewing funding options for all library services and special events, including children’s author & book functions.”

We hope one of those funded special events will be the one-day Savannah Children’s Book Festival in Forsyth Park in November 2019.

Please make your voices heard and show your support for bringing back The Savannah Children’s Book Festival in 2019 by contacting the following via email.
