The following message comes from Hal Massie for Central Georgia Bot =
Soccers,
but all Bot Soc members are welcome.

Greetings Central Georgia BotSoccers,
 
Our first impromptu field trip, to Montezuma Bluffs,
was a big hit.  We had 15 people attend and got to see
quite a few early spring wildflowers, including Trillium reliquum
and Trillium maculatum.
 
We have another trip planned for next Saturday, April 3.  Tom
Patrick, DNR botanist, will lead us on an exploration of The Pocket of
Pigeon 
Mountain in NW Georgia.  This is probably the premier wildflower
site in the state of Georgia.  We'll start at 10 AM.
 
>From Tom:  I will explore limestone glades afterwards on the opposite =
side
of Pigeon Mountain and walk to a secluded limestone sink with other good
wildflowers.  Recommend packing a lunch and eating at the spring above =
The
Pocket.  Afternoon trip can be as long as anyone wishes; mostly short =
walks
from cars.  The Jeffersonia diphylla is at peak now, but we will stand a
good chance of seeing bluebells and yellow wood poppies at peak - they =
are a
little slow this year.
Directions:  From downtown LaFayette, Ga., which is on US 27 BUSINESS
(Main St.), go a few blocks south and turn west on GA 193 for 8 miles
to Davis Crossroads (there's a little store on the right with this
name), where GA 341 comes in from the right. At this junction turn
left onto Hog Jowl Road and go 2.6 miles, passing Mt. Herman Baptist
Church. At the top of the next hill, turn left onto Pocket Rd. and
drive 1.2 miles until the road ends. Park in the Pocket Trailhead
parking lot on the left.
If you need directions to LaFayette, or have any questions, feel free
to call or write me.  If you want to ride with someone or carpool, just
post a message to this group by hitting 'Reply All'.
 
Hope to see everyone there!
 
Hal Massie
