Times they are a changin' and animals and plants are racing to keep up. Come to the February meeting of Habitat and Wildlife Keepers (HAWK) as Clemson University naturalist and host of the ETV program Expeditions, Patrick McMillan, explains how plants and animals are on the move in the Piedmont. Alteration of habitats, moderation in winter temperatures and extreme droughts are forcing native species to seek refuge in new regions. As a consequence, the Carolinas are becoming a home away from home for some new and interesting species. Learn what is happening in our neck of the woods – the Piedmont.
Over the past 15 years Patrick has worked as a professional naturalist, biologist and educator. His range of experience has concentrated on botany (plant science) though he is also well-respected through his work in ichthyology, herpetology, and mammalogy. Patrick is a professional naturalist, lecturer, and director of the Campbell Museum of Natural History at Clemson University.
The meeting starts promptly at 7pm and is free and open to everyone. For more information www.habitatsteward.org
