The Museum of Coastal Carolina recently presented a program on entitled "What's in the Water?" detailing how water pollution effects the organisms and vegatation that live in or near water.
The program was led by Richard Hilderman, a retired biochemist from Clemson University, who lives in Sunset Beach. He described how pollutants, including the burning of fossil fuels, industrial waste and plastic affect the inhabitants of oceans and salt marshes.
The museum, at 21 E. Second St. in Ocean Isle Beach, is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with admission free for museum and dual museum/planetarium members.
Non-member admission is $9.50 for adults, $8.50 for seniors, $7.50 for children 3 through 12, and free for children age 2 and under.
