The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Tom Murphy, a retired biologist with the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, for a presentation on March 6 at 3 p.m. Murphy, who was in charge of endangered species during his long career, will share his knowledge of the natural history of alligators in the Lowcountry. From nearly extinct in the State to abundant, this presentation will cover the successes and difficulties in recovering and maintaining alligators as a part of South Carolina’s natural landscape. It will also cover key natural history characteristics and the unique traits that alligators have evolved over 180 million years of evolution.
The cost of the program is $7 per person (for an adult audience 12 and older) and reservations are required by calling (843) 689-6767 ext 223 or online at www.coastaldiscovery.org. The Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Dr.
