The Georgia Botanical Society sponsors a Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage every year to a different and interesting part of the state. This event consists of an overnight two- to three-day weekend with multiple field trips, speakers, and a banquet, all at the best price possible. This makes the Pilgrimage one of the Georgia Botanical Society’s most popular offerings.
The 44th Annual Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage will be held April 5-7, 2013, in Augusta, Richmond County, Georgia, and in adjacent areas in Georgia and South Carolina.
