Boat Rock Preserve Field Trip
May 30, 2015 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
We’ll explore the fascinating Boat Rock Preserve, spared first from intensive farming by its granite boulders, and more recently from residential development by climbing fans of these boulders. To learn more, visit this site: http://www.sandtown.org/boat_rock.htm. As the site describes, “the natural community of Boat Rock is a rare example of an intact oak-hickory piedmont forest. Flowering shrubs such as Oconee azalea and dwarf Pawpaw grow underneath a canopy of white oak and pignut hickory. In the spring and summer, wildflowers such as vernal iris, green adder’s mouth orchids, and Catesby’s trillium color the forest floor.”
