Join ORK and Horticulture Manager, Joshua Jones, (again!) for a late spring / early summer plant walk through the Botanic Garden at Georgia Southern. Explore the 11 acres of historic farmland that has been turned into a growing collection of native and heritage plants, including over 20 of the state’s protected species. The garden offers woodland trails, a landscape garden of coastal plain natives, a native azalea collection, an arboretum, a children’s garden, a complex of early 20th-century farm buildings, the Rural Life Museum, the Whelchel Camellia Garden, heritage gardens, an outdoor classroom, labyrinth and much more.
The walk will be followed with an optional get-together at Eagle Creek Brewery, 106 Savannah Ave B, Statesboro.
The walk will take place outdoors on paths with some uneven ground. Participants should dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable walking shoes. Restrooms and water fountains are located inside the garden grounds.
This event is free to ORK members, although the Botanic Garden accepts donations. Members of the Botanic Garden are welcome to join and encouraged to become ORK members as well.
