Walk in the Woods: Alligators

Alligator

All are welcome to join us for the next Walk in the Woods Nature Lecture which will feature an ecological overview of the biology, place in the ecosystem and recovery of alligators.

Mark Kramer, Stewardship Coordinator for Armand Bayou Nature Center, will be presenting Alligators of Southeast Texas: The Apex Predator of an Urban Wilderness.

On the brink of extinction in the 1960’s, alligators are a success story, having made a complete recovery by 1987. Living fossils, alligators inhabit freshwater ponds, rivers, marshlands and swamps from Corpus Christi along the Gulf Coast to the Atlantic Ocean as far north as the Carolinas.
