Biological Foundation brings television host to garden celebration

Written by 

Patrick McMillan, the host, co-creator, and writer of the popular and award-winning ETV nature program “Expeditions with Patrick McMillan,” is headlining an event celebrating the Highlands Botanical Garden’s 50th anniversary with a talk at 3 p.m. on Saturday, May 12, at the Highlands Biological Station.  

McMillian is a professional naturalist, biologist, and educator, and has extensive experience in botany. He is the director of the Campbell Museum of Natural History at Clemson University, plus the interim director of the South Carolina Botanical Gardens. His intense interest in natural history, which he attributes to his grandmother, has taken him all over the world.

McMillan will talk about the Southern Blue Ridge Escarpment in “The Southern Blue Ridge: Crucible of Life.”

Registration for Saturday includes a wildflower walk, lunch, the chance to bid on silent auction items while listening to live music and enjoying a reception and cash bar, and, of course, the opportunity to hear McMillan’s talk. Cost is $50 for members and $60 for non-members.
