Lowcountry: Rare Plants and Botanical Oddities of the Lowcountry Wildlife Refuges
February 20 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm
Keith Bradley, USC Herbarium
Bradley recently surveyed and mapped the rare plants of the National Wildlife Refuges in the lowcountry and the State-managed Lewis Ocean Bay Heritage Preserve in Horry County. In his talk, Bradley will highlight some of the unusual and unique species he encountered during his surveys. He is especially passionate about the rare plants that aren’t usually given much attention. Some plants, such as the pygmy spider lily, are “under the radar in the conservation community,” according to Keith. Keith Bradley has been a research botanist for over 25 years, with expertise in plant taxonomy and conservation, and has authored Southeastern US plant identification guides.
