North Carolina is home to 67 (known) species of salamander, more than any other place on earth. The presentation will highlight North Carolina’s salamander diversity, highlighting many of the species found in the area and then center on the Eastern Hellbender (Cryptobranchus a. alleganiensis), listed in North Carolina as species of special concern.

A native South Carolinian, Tim has studied and taught as a naturalist and biologist throughout the southeast for more than 32 years. For the past 23 years he has been the Interpretive Ranger/Naturalist for South Carolina State Park Service’s Mountain Bridge Wilderness Area where he conducts research and provides educational programs for children and adults. He is the South Carolina Park Services coordinator with the South Carolina Master Naturalist Program and is an Educational Leadership Partner for the South Carolina Aquarium.
