Due to their astounding biodiversity, these two locations remain two of our favorite locations to go on field trips. On its 5,300 acres, Solon Dixon Preserve, are crystal clear spring fed streams and a lake that appear turquoise in color, pitcher plant bogs, cypress ponds, longleaf pine habitats, fascinating rock formations and sand hills.
 
On Sunday we visit to Splinter Hill Bog, The Nature Conservancy in Alabama's preserve, where grows, in addition to several species of carnivorous plants, the largest population of Sarracenia spp. (pitcher plants) in the world!  
 
The event fee includes room cost for two nights and five meals. Details will be provided once participants have registered.
