Groundcover Restoration Workshop
October 29 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Heather Brasell will lead the ground restoration field day at the Gaskins Forest Education Center. The class will visit a variety of sites to compare and contrast groundcover restoration projects and management practices, including managing invasive plant species. Habitats include minimum understory management (thin and burn), economy understory restoration (thin and burn with limited use of supplemental seeds), high-quality seed mix for pollinator garden, conversion from turf grass to meadow, and rehabilitating a wetland area.
To register, contact Heather Brasell email@example.com.
Both classes are free and can be counted as an elective for the Certificate in Native Plants program of the State Botanical Garden. A field house is available for participants to stay overnight.
The Coastal Plain Chapter, GNPS is a co-sponsor of the two educational events with Gaskins Forest Education Center.
Gaskins Forest Education Center is located at 3359 Moore Sawmill Rd., Alapaha, GA.
