An evening of cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, and:

  • Dr. Charles Nelson, the Trust’s Senior Research Director, will be visiting from the UK to share his recent discoveries in a talk entitled “Curious – and Curiouser.”

  • Professor Patrick McMillan from Clemson University will discuss what he has learned about where Catesby traveled in South Carolina, based on knowledge of plants that Catesby sent back to England, and the specific soil types they needed in order to grow.

  • David J. Elliott will explain the educational program entitled “Creating a Better Way to Learn” which is a significant collaboration of the Trust, College of Charleston, Charleston County School District, and SCETV.
