Southeastern Virginia is the northernmost home for the fire dependent Longleaf Pine, but there are other native plants that rely on burning to survive and reproduce. Learn about these unique fire dependent relationships from Zach Bradford at the Thursday, January 11th meeting of the Pocahontas Chapter, Virginia Native Plant Society.
This free meeting is open to the public and takes place in the Education and Library Complex of the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden. Start time is 7:00 p.m., but the room is available at 6:30 so come early and get to know others with similar interests. A short business meeting will follow the presentations.
Bradford is the Chesapeake Bay Region Steward for the Department of Conservation and Recreation's Natural Heritage Program. A native plant enthusiast since the third grade, he spends most of his free time searching for and photographing native orchids and other botanical rarities.
