What a fantastic Rally weekend! There was so much to explore and share!
This year’s dinner was a partnership with the Independence Farmer’s Market providing high quality, local ingredients for the Konnarock Community Center to prepare a super meal. After dinner, speaker Sarah Ross, Executive Director of the UGA Center for Research and Education at Wormsloe, gave a great talk about Monarchs, Milkweed and the importance of insects.
This year's field trips included birding, salamanders, tree ID, bio survey, wildflowers, a hike to Mt. Rogers, big tree hike, wild edibles, drawing from life, mammals, geology, and much more.
Special thanks to all of the folks who made the Rally such a great success: the organizers, guides, Friday night speaker, participants, cooks, volunteers, and BRDC staff.
