Conserving Carolina and the Landrum Library are hosting a free lecture entitled, “Bioluminescence: From Fireflies to Fungi,” presented by naturalist and educator, Tim Lee. The program will be held on Tuesday, August 29 at 6 p.m. at the Landrum Library, located at 111 East Asbury Dr. in Landrum. 

Fireflies flash on a warm summer night. The eerie glow of jack-o-lantern mushrooms in the forest on a moonless night. These lights bring mystery and magic to the dark night. At the program, discover how light is produced and emitted from living organisms and how it is used to lure prey, deter predators and entice insects.

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 member of the National Association of Interpreters and an honorary SC Statewide Master Naturalist and an honorary member of the Upstate Master Naturalist Association.
