Collecting shells and fossils on Lowcountry beaches is a favorite pastime among locals and visitors alike. The found ages of these objects can range from less than a decade to millions of years old. Join Curator of Natural History Matthew Gibson as he describes how to properly collect and identify common shells and fossils found in the Lowcountry.
Curator Talk programs provide visitors with an overview of a specified topic related to the Museum’s extraordinary and diverse collections before exploring the galleries on their own. Held in the Arthur M. Wilcox Auditorium, each Curator-led talk allows participants to immerse themselves in different areas of Charleston’s rich history with insight provided by the Museum’s knowledgeable curatorial staff. Conversations with a Curator and Curator Talk programs are typically held on the second Friday of each month.
Curator Talk programs are open to the public and FREE for Members and FREE with admission. Per CDC recommendations, masks are encouraged if you have not been fully vaccinated.
