Before the last ice age, armadillos the size of Jeep Wranglers roamed the Americas. Today, although much smaller, only the nine-banded armadillo exists in the Carolinas. Join us as we discover the “little armored one.”

Tim is a native South Carolinian, and he has studied and taught as a naturalist and biologist throughout the southeast for more than 30 years. He is a coordinator and instructor for the South Carolina Master Naturalist Program and is an Educational Leadership Partner for the South Carolina Aquarium. Tim is a member of the National Association of Interpreters and an honorary SC Statewide Master Naturalist and an honorary member of the Upstate Master Naturalist Association.

This lecture is part of Conserving Carolina’s monthly Speaker Series, made possible thanks to the Landrum Library. The next program at the Landrum Library will be held on August 29, when Tim Lee, will present “Bioluminescence: From Fireflies to Fungi.”
