Mountain Plant Communities!

April 1 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm


Certificate in Native Plant Studies
The South Carolina Native Plant Society (SCNPS) and the South Carolina Botanical Garden (SCBG) are excited to offer a Certificate in Native Plant Studies program. To read more, click here.

Learning to recognize mountain plant communities can increase your ability to spot their resident plant species. Plant communities tend to be found in similar habitats depending on the local and broader environmental conditions. Join naturalist Tim Lee to explore mountain plant communities in the Jocassee Gorges area and along Hwy 11 corridor to explore how factors like elevation, aspect, slope, rainfall and temperature affect the locations and types of mountain plant communities as well as aid in identifying plants living within them.

Mountain Plant Communities is an elective. Pre-requisite: Basic Botany.

Meeting location yet to be determined, but probably somewhere near the intersection of Hwys 11 and 178 in northern Pickens County.
