Expeditions provides new insights into nature

By  Dana McCullough

ExpeditionsFrom Lowcountry marshes to Caribbean rainforests, amazing discoveries abound on Expeditions with Patrick McMillan, a new nature series produced for SC-ETV. Clemson naturalist Patrick McMillan explores environmental issues with co-host Nancy Neal and a guest expert. From the Valley of Desolation in Dominica to the secret lives of bats in the Nantahala Mountains of North Carolina, this is no average walk in the woods. 

“We are very excited about premiering Expeditions,” said ETV President Maurice “Moss” Bresnahan. “ETV has a long tradition of nature programming and Expeditions is the next chapter in this impressive legacy.”

McMillan hopes that this series will show the connection between humans and our world.  “Virtually every drug ever developed has its origin in plants and animals. If we’re destroying natural resources faster than we can research them, we’re doing ourselves a disservice,” he said.

The series provides science-based insights to enhance environmental awareness and conservation practices. It is produced by Clemson Video Productions and airs Sundays at 7:30 p.m. on SC-ETV.
