Birdsong is sponsoring a trip to this very special place north of Moultrie, GA.  Cost is $10 non-members, $5 members.  This contributes to Birdsong and provides the opportunity to go there with Birdsong board member Phil Spivey, recently of GA DNR, who had a lot to do with restoring the bog from its many-year overgrown state.  It is now one of Georgia's largest remaining pitcherplant bogs, featuring hooded and parrot pitcherplants, the yellow flytrap, and many other rare plants.  Ecosystems include natural bogs, longleaf-wiregrass uplands and pine floatwoods.  We will learn about fire-adapted natural communities, interesting wildflowers, and the efforts to preserve this sensitive system.  For reservations and directions on where to meet at Birdsong, Thomasville Walmart, or at the bog, call 229 377 4408 by noon Friday.
