Who Made the Everglades?

7:30 PM

South FL Science Museum  

4801 Dreher Trail North  W. Palm Beach  33405



IMPORTANT:  Starting in January 2013, we will be meeting at the South Florida Science Museum NOT the Garden Club. The Museum is across the street from the Garden Club.

This talk will explore the geological and cultural history of the Everglades. In particular, we will look at the early Native Americans and initial tree island formations.


Michele Williams, Ph.D., RPA, is the Director for the Southeastern Region of Florida Public Archaeology Network at Florida Atlantic University.  Dr. Williams has participated in excavations throughout the southeastern United States for the past 25 years.  Her specialty within archaeology is the use of plants by prehistoric Native Americans.
