Bald Eagles in South Carolina

The Coastal Discovery Museum at Honey Horn will present a program on Bald Eagles in South Carolina on April 3 at 3 pm. Tom Murphy, a retired biologist from the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources and principal investigator for the Bald Eagle Program for 33 years, will share his knowledge of the natural history of Bald Eagles in the Lowcountry. Once nearly extinct in the state, this presentation will cover the successes and difficulties in recovering and maintaining Bald Eagles in South Carolina. Different factors contributed to the decimation of the national bird; however, these spectacular predators were taken off the Endangered Species list in 2007, and are now a common sight in the Lowcountry. Learn how our national bird became an endangered species, about the efforts that helped bring them back, and what we can do to secure their future. Cost is $7.00 per person and reservations are required by calling (843) 689-6767 ext 223 or online at www.coastaldiscovery.org. The Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island.
