  • 14. Spartina grass makes up the marshland ofSouth Carolina. It was planted to help control erosion; however, it can become an invasiveplant. It can over run many other plants in the area. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 15. South Carolina has 2,876 miles of coastalshoreline. We are ranked the eleventh longestin the US for coastal shoreline. This benefits our economy greatly. Tourism plays a major role in our economy. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 16. The world’s second largest ocean. It border South Carolina’s eastern coast. The AtlanticOcean is home to many different sea creaturesand brings people from all around the world to our state. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 17. A view of South Carolina’s shoreline. You cansee the many different islands and rivers that make up the South Carolina Low Country. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 18. Beach erosion is a constant threat to ourcoastline. A lot of the sand on our beaches can be carried away by the pull of the Atlantic or blown away by the wind. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 19. A watershed is a geographic area from whichwater drains toward a common watercourse (such as a lake, stream, and ocean) in a natural basin.They are the basic building blocks of the natural environment. Plants and animals depend on a healthy watershed to provide their habitat. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 20. South Carolina has two shrimp seasons. The first runs from May through August, when smaller, brown shrimp are harvested. The popular white shrimp season begins in September and lasts through December. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 21. Barrier Islands, a coastal landform and a type of barrier system, are relatively narrow strips of sandthat parallel the mainland coast. They usually occurin chains, consisting of anything from a few islandsto more than a dozen. Excepting the tidal inlets that separate the islands, a barrier chain may extend uninterrupted for over a hundred kilometers Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 22. The Hunting Island Lighthouse is located inHunting Island State Park on Hunting Island near Beaufort, South Carolina. Although no longerutilized as a functioning lighthouse, the tower is a fixture at the state park and is open to visitors. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 23. The Charleston Harbor is an inlet of the Atlantic Ocean at Charleston, South Carolina. The inlet isformed by the junction of Ashley and Cooper rivers. Sullivans Island shelters the entrance. Charleston Harbor is part of the Intracoastal Waterway. The inlet is evidence of a drowned coastline, created by a rise in sea level in recent geologic time. Museum Coastal Entrance Zone
  • 24. A delta is a landform that is formed at themouth of a river, where that river flows into an ocean, sea, estuary, lake, or reservoir. Deltas are formed from the buildup of the sediment carried by the river as the flow leaves the mouth of the river Museum Outer Entrance Coastal Plain
  • 25. A plantation is a large farm or estate where cotton, tobacco, coffee, sugar cane, or the like is cultivated. Most of the plantationsalong the coastal plain grew rice, indigo, or Sea Island cotton. Museum Outer Entrance Coastal Plain
  • 26. South Carolina has more marsh acreage thanany other Atlantic coast state (344,500 acres of salt marsh). Because salt marshes in SouthCarolina are influenced by the twice daily rise and fall of tides, they are subject to rapid changes in salinity, temperature and water depth. Museum Outer Entrance Coastal Plain
  • 27. American alligators inhabit the southeastern United States. Once a federally listed endangered species, American alligators haverecovered . The species is still federally listed as threatened because it looks like the American crocodile, which is endangered. In SouthCarolina, alligators have been recorded to reach lengths of more than 13 feet. Museum Outer Entrance Coastal Plain
  • 28. Wetlands (swamps, marshes, and bogs) are areas of land that are saturated with moisture seasonally or permanently. Believed to be the most diverseecosystems in the world, wetlands are home to various species of plants, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. This includes many threatened and endangered species. In addition to wildlife habitat, wetlands act as filters to improve water quality. Wetlands also reduce flooding and recharge ground water. Museum Outer Entrance Coastal Plain
  • 29. You can see the difference between land and water on this infrared map.Museum OuterEntrance Coastal Plain
  • 30. The Coastal Plain is flat and has a lowelevation. These two factors make it extremely susceptible to flooding especially during a hurricane. Museum Outer Entrance Coastal Plain
  • 31. As you can see there is little change in theelevation of the coastal plain. It is basically flatland.Museum InnerEntrance Coastal Plain
  • 32. The coastal plain has a rich history of a diverseagricultural sector, producing large quantities of tomatoes, rice, and vegetables. However, with changing markets, development pressure, andrising land prices, local farms are disappearing. The Coastal Conservation League andLowcountry Local First are working together to preserve Lowcountry agriculture.Museum InnerEntrance Coastal Plain
  • 33. Millions of years ago the inner coastal plain was underwater.Museum InnerEntrance Coastal Plain
  • 34. Notice all the waterways on top of the flat layer of bedrock.Museum InnerEntrance Coastal Plain
  • 35. The Great Pee Dee is large and wild. Most of the land bordering the river is floodplain forest. The corridor is a swath of high quality wildlife habitat, boasting 120 species of fish, at least 25 rare plant species, several endangered and threatened species (including the American alligator and bald eagle), and typical South Carolina game species, such as white tail deer and turkey.

  • 38. The 45,348-acre refuge serves as a demonstration site for land management practices, which preserve and enhance the longleaf pine/wiregrass ecosystem. It is home to a variety of plants and animals. The refugesupports approximately 190 species of birds, 42 species of mammals, 41 species of reptiles, 25 species of amphibians, and innumerable species of plants. The refuge supports an estimated 125 clusters of the endangered red-cockaded woodpecker, the largest population in the National Wildlife Refuge System. Museum Sandhills Entrance
  • 39. A large portion of the rocks and sediment inSouth Carolina contain fossils. The majority of these fossils are of marine life from the Miocene Epoch. The Miocene Epoch wasbetween 22.7 and 5.3 million years ago. During this time an ancient shoreline came up to the sandhills. Museum Sandhills Entrance
  • 40. Above the sand deposits of the sandhills lies the Fall line, where the rocky river beds meet the sediment covered river bottoms of the Coastal Plain. This was as far as most boats could sail safely upriver. Museum Sandhills Entrance
  • 41. The broad-headed skink gets its name from the wide jaws, giving the head a triangular appearance. Broad-headed skinks are widely distributed in the south-eastern states of the U.S. These skinks are sometimes wronglythought to be venomous. Broad-headed skinks are non venomous. Museum Sandhills Entrance
  • 42. Anoles are small and common lizards that can befound throughout the southeastern United States. A large majority of them sport a green coloration,including the only species native to North America, the aptly named Green anole, although the green anole can change its color based on its mood and surroundings.

  • 44. Seven of the eight species of pitcherplants are confined to the south-eastern coastal plain of the U.S. They inhabit swamps and grassy plains. They are threatenedin the wild by development and drainage of their habitat. Estimates indicate 97% of their habitat has been destroyed in the southeastern U.S. Several southeastern states, such as Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina have conservation laws to protect them. Museum Sandhills Entrance

  • 46. White-tailed deer are generalists and can adapt to awide variety of habitats. They thrive throughout the state. One way white-tailed deer communicate is with their white tail. When a white-tailed deer isspooked it will raise its tail to warn the other deer in the area that can see it. The white-tailed deer is the state animal of South Carolina. Museum Sandhills Entrance
  • 47. The Sandhills are hilly, unconnected bands of sand left from the ocean dunes during theMiocene Epoch Era. Sand depths in sandhillscan reach as deep as 60 meters (198 feet). The sandhills are wedged between the Coastal Plains and Piedmont regions of North and South Carolina and Georgia. Museum Sandhills Entrance
  • 48. The gopher tortoise is native to the southeastern United States. The gopher tortoise is seen as a keystone species because it digs burrows that provide shelter for 360 other animal species. They are threatened by predation and habitat destruction. On average, each gopher tortoise needs about 4 acres to live. Museum Sandhills Entrance
  • 49. The U.S. piedmont extends along most of the southeastern U.S.Museum PiedmontEntrance
