Bog Restoration Workday 11/16
by Carla on October 27th, 2017

Join Us For a Day of Pitcherplant Habitat Restoration at the
Canoochee Bogs!

Description: Join forces with the Georgia Plant Conservation Alliance for some down-and-dirty Autumn Bogging at the Canoochee Bogs! This is a pitcherplant habitat restoration work day as well as opportunity for learning about herbaceous bog ecology and plants. The task will be to cut shrubs to increase pitcherplant habitat. We plan to follow with burning in 2019. Fire will be able to move more effectively through the habitat with lower shrub density.
 
Date and Time: Thurs. Nov. 16; 10 AM to 4:00 PM— but you may leave early if needed. Option afterwards for BBQ / semi-veggie sides at Harry’s BBQ in the town of Hagan nearby.
 
Meeting Location: We will meet at 10:00 AM, town of Bellville, Evans County, at the SW corner of the intersection of State Hwys. 292 and 169. There is a good parking lot here at a restored train depot.
 
Bring: Work gloves, loppers, hand saws, and/or hand-pruners. Sun protection is critical, as well as lunch and water.
 
RSVP: Please RSVP! to Lisa Kruse, lisa.kruse@dnr.ga.gov
