Spring is our busiest time of year for “guided walks”. Groups and organizations from all over the region want to get out and see the interesting and beautiful plants of the Southeast Coastal Plain. This spring we had garden clubs, non-profit organizations, school groups, and photographers visit our preserves hoping to get a look at something special, and boy did they ever!
I recently did a walk in the Green Swamp for the Hobby Greenhouse Club. They were a very fun group that was interested in seeing Venus flytraps and other carnivorous plants in their natural habitat opposed to in greenhouses where they typically see them. We had a great walk! Here are some of the highlights.
I also took a TNC photographer around to some of our preserves so that he could get carnivorous plant photos for a layout that will feature the Southeast Coastal Plain carnivorous plants in the national TNC magazine! We are very excited that our region will be showcased in the national publication.
And it wouldn’t be spring without some amazing photos from our local photographer hero Skip Pudney. We love how he captures the savannas, you can tell he really connects with the ecosystems in our region. Thanks again Skip for showcasing all of our hard work!
