The Grasslands of Dry Branch

Ratibida pinnata

Description: We will travel from the 412 Market to the natural area. Here we will explore the upland grasslands. These grasslands add diversity to the plant and animal richness of the natural area. Leaders will identify plants and animals, collect seed (for conservation initiatives) and discuss the importance of grasslands. We will contribute important data to the Southeastern Grasslands Initiative by adding plant and animal records to iNaturalist. All data will be used to understand the region’s grasslands and provide important information regarding management.  There is a limit of 15 people for this trip.
