Alligators by Author Marcia Meara at DeBary Hall Historic Site

February 10 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Alligator Mississippiensis 01

The American alligator is arguably Florida’s most famous – or infamous – inhabitant. Local author and nature lover Marcia Meara, author of Swamp Ghosts – set in the fictional town of Riverbend, will share facts about the crocodilian reptiles at 1 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 10, at DeBary Hall Historic Site, 198 Sunrise Blvd., DeBary.
She will show photos of alligators in Volusia County and explain how to tell an alligator from a crocodile, how many babies survive to adulthood, how many species exist in the world, where they live, and more.
After the presentation, Meara will answer questions and sell copies of her Wake-Robin Ridge and Riverbend books. This is the second installment of a six-part series titled Central Florida’s Fabulous Wildlife.
Reservations are not required for the free program. For more information, contact Tracy Mestre, at 386-668-3840 or [email protected]
