Biodiversity at its Best: Solon Dixon Preserve and Splinter Hill Bog

April 5, 2019 - April 7, 2019

$325.00

It’s a field trip, and a favorite one at that! Led by Fred Nation, Field Botanist and
Environmental Consultant, and John Manion, Kaul Wildflower Garden Curator with the Friends
of Birmingham Botanical Gardens, explorers will see Andalusia’s Solon Dixon Preserve, where
crystal-clear, spring-fed springs; a turquoise-hued lake; pitcher plant bogs; cypress ponds,
longleaf pond habitats; and much more will make you wish you could stay longer. Next you’ll
head to Splinter Hill Bog in Bay Minette where you’ll see the largest population of pitcher plants
in the world and, not to be outdone, several species of carnivorous plants! Sponsored by the
Friends of the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, this field trip is part of the Friends’ Certificate in
Native Plant Studies (CNPS) curriculum, but all are welcome. Cost is $305/members; $325/
non-members. Cost includes two nights and five meals. For more information and to register,
