The Coastal Discovery Museum will host Robert Rommel on April 8 at 2 p.m., for this program. Before European settlement, the majority of the Lowcountry was composed of wetlands dominated by Bald and Pond Cypress. Some remnants of these magnificent swamps still remain and flourish. Rommel will introduce the history of these ecosystems, the biology of this grand tree, and the community of wildlife which thrives in these wetlands.
Cost is $7 per person and reservations are required by calling 843-689-6767 ext. 223 or www.coastaldiscovery.org/calendar. The Museum is located at 70 Honey Horn Drive on Hilton Head Island.
