Do you know what a Carolina Bay is? Some people think they were formed by meteorites, others have no idea how they came to be and still others don’t even know they exist. There is a Carolina Bay open to the public right in the City of Aiken.

ALC, in partnership with the City of Aiken, is presenting a talk by a specialist on these unusual landforms. Naturalist author Tom Poland will give a talk on Carolina Bays at Odell Weeks on October 9 and then lead the group on a short walk from Odell Weeks to the bay on Price Avenue. Please join us for this free event. More details to come.

In anticipation of this event you can preview photographs of Bays all over the South in the book Carolina Bays: Wild, Mysterious, and Majestic Landforms which Mr. Poland co-authored with photographer Robert C. Clark. (https://www.amazon.com/Carolina-Bays-Mysterious-Majestic-Landforms/dp/1643360566)
