Event Description

Ben Raines will speak at Bellingrath Gardens and Home on Wednesday, January 17, 2018.

Environmental reporter and filmmaker Ben Raines will describe the secrets of an ancient underwater cypress forest recently discovered south of Alabama's Gulf Shores in the Gulf of Mexico. The cypress forest dates back to an Ice Age more than 60,000 years ago, when sea levels were 400 feet lower than today. Ben’s acclaimed documentary about the forest was released in June 2017. The event is part of the Winter Wednesdays series at Bellingrath in January and February. Visit bellingrath.org to view the full schedule; call 251-459-8727 to register.
