INTERGENERATIONAL Weekend FOR ALL AGES

Our opening weekend was very productive and adventuresome. Alice

grounds, teaching the youth to identify native plants. Then, the adults
received a lesson in wildflower identification by using a guidebook.
In the early afternoon, we drove
to the "Ghost of Big Savannah" nearby, where a controlled burn has
helped to re-establish native carniverous plants. Alice's colleague
Zac Hill joined us on our walk, as we found pitcher plants, sundew,
When we returned, our youth service project added plants to the Phobe
Cates Memorial Garden.
