The All American Alligator DI Conservancy

Saturday, August 8, 2012 5:00 - 7:00 p.m.Melrose on the Beach Island House

No other animal in the Lowcountry causes more conversations and reactions than the American Alligator. They are loved, appreciated, and respected but at the same time feared, disrespected, and reviled. One thing is for certain...they are here, always have been here, and will continue to be in the Lowcountry.Join naturalist Marvin Bouknight for a presentation and walk around Daufuskie Island to learn more about the biology and behavior of this modern day dinosaur, helping us discover how to replace apprehension with appreciation, fictional with factual, reprehension with respect, and common fears with common sense.

*Join us for a 45 minute – 1 hour presentation and then for a walk around some of the ponds and lagoons around Daufuskie Island to discover not only dinosaurs in our midst, but also some local folklore about some of thelocal flora and fauna of the island.

Admission is free for DI Conservancy Members, $5.00 for Non-members. The Daufuskie Island Conservancy
