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.
