Native Plant Society, Magnolia Chapter Field Trip: Flint Rock Preserve

  • October 12, 2018
  • 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
  • US-98 & Lighthouse Rd (near the fire tower)

Brian Pelc, Restoration Project Manager, The Nature Conservancy, will lead this field trip to the Flint Rock Preserve where we will see some early comparative results of restoration techniques that are being used to restore longleaf pine in the flatwoods.

Prior to this field trip Brian Pelk will also be giving a presentation on this topic to the Friends of the Apalachicola National Forest (FANF) on Monday, October 8 and Ace Haddock will also be speaking at this FANF meeting which you are encouraged to attend because it will provide background information that you will need to fully appreciate this field trip.

Carpool:  Meet to form a car pool at 9:00 a.m. by the fire tower at the intersection of US 98 and Lighthouse Rd. (Last chance restroom opportunities prior to the meetup can be found at gas stations at Woodville Rd (363) & Bloxham Cutoff Rd (267), or Woodville Rd (363) & US 98, or at the St. Marks Wildlife Refuge visitor center).

The field trip will involve driving on some rough dirt roads. There will be 3 stops which are accessible in an all-wheel drive vehicle, but continuing on to the 4th stop will require a true 4-wheel drive vehicle. Please RSVP to Helen Roth, troth001@comcast.net, with your name(s), type of vehicle, and if you are willing to be a car pool driver. Call 850-980-1941 if you have any questions.

Please remember to bring the usual personal field trip items such as water, snack, bug spray, suntan lotion, sun/insect protection clothing, hiking stick...
