Meet our exhibitors and vendors and peruse all things sea turtle at the Southeast Regional Sea Turtle Meeting Open House. Shop for pottery, artwork, glass art pieces and special one-of-a-kind items.
A highlight of the Public Open House will include a book signing with South Carolina resident and New York Times bestselling author, Mary Alice Monroe. Her novel A Lowcountry Christmas won a 2017 Southern Book Prize in fiction, awarded by the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance (SIBA). The Beach House will be adapted into a Hallmark Channel Hall of Fame Movie, starring three-time Golden Globe nominee Andie MacDowell and premiering exclusively on the network in 2018. Mary Alice serves on the Board of the South Carolina Aquarium, The Leatherback Trust, and Charleston Literacy Volunteers. She is an active conservationist with a special passion for sea turtles.
We're also featuring Captain Ron, Disney's Conservation Team member and the cutest pocket beagle you've ever seen. Learn how Captain Ron uses his special skills to help conserve endangered species like sea turtles.
