Carnivorous Plants and Their Habitats in the Southeastern U.S.
July 15, 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 US along with their other bog cohorts including sundews, bladderworts and Venus flytraps. Following a short classroom presentation, the majority of the time will be spent up 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 part of a new program and is located outside of the Athens area.
