Horry County Museum Lecture Series: Flora & Fauna of the Carolina Bays

Talks/Lectures
Did you know that the Carolina Bays in Horry County are the only place in South Carolina you can find Venus Fly Traps growing wild? Carolina Bays are elliptical depressions housing temporary wetlands surrounded by sandy rims. The origin of these dense and marshy depressions have been debated since being brought into the scientific spotlight thanks to aerial photography of the Myrtle Beach area in the 1930s. What isn’t up for debate is the unique and familiar wildlife that call the Carolina Bays home, including multiple species of carnivorous plants. Stop by the McCown Auditorium at 1 PM on April 24th to learn more about some of the wildlife of the Carolina Bays with Horry County Museum Technical Assistant Abigail Geedy.
