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

Apr 24, 2021

  • Venue: Horry County Museum
  • Address: 805 Main Street,, Conway, SC 29526
  • Time: 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM

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. Stop by the McCown Auditorium at 1 PM on April 24th to learn more w/ Abigail Geedy from Horry County Museum.
