Carnivorous Plants and Their Habitats in the Southeastern U.S.

July 27, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm

Henning von Schmeling, senior director of operations, Chattahoochee Nature Center

 

 

Pitcher plants are some of the most spectacular carnivorous plants. In this class, you have the chance to be up close and hands-on with many of those found right here in the southeastern U.S., along with their other bog cohorts, including sundews, bladderworts and Venus flytraps. Following a short classroom presentation, most of the time will be spent in the nursery greenhouse area of Chattahoochee Nature Center, where participants will begin to propagate many of these fascinating plants with expert assistance. There is no better way to learn about these special plants than through hands-on experience with experts who have decades of experience growing carnivorous plants. Please note that this class is located outside of the Athens area.

 

This class is an elective for the Certificate in Native Plants.
