Naturalist Shares His Book on Lowcountry Flora and Fauna

We are pleased to host Naturalist and Photographer Marvin Bouknight on Wed., April 20th in a BDC@ Beaufort Branch program on our area's plant and animal life. We are starting the program at 6 pm.

He will have copies of his book, South Carolina's Lowcountry ... Naturally available for sale and will autograph your copy should you request it.

Richard Brooks of Bluffton Today wrote a review which includes images from Bouknight's work.

You can view some of his bird photographs on the Carolina Bird Club Photo Gallery page.

The Island Packet interviewed him last Fall about carnivorous plants.

His sense of humor is sure to come out during his presentation. Please make plans now to attend what is certain to be an informative and entertaining BDC@ The Branches local history program in two weeks.
