Lowcountry Alligators

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 pm. 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
