The Field Research Center (FRC) Native Pollinator Garden
The garden started in the fall of 2021, with the help of many volunteers who clear a portion of the land, mended the soil, planted several varieties of native plants and spread mulch. We are so thankful to our volunteers!
Together we have planted 83 flowers in 18 different species all native to Georgia. See list here.
There are three “high priority species” that are at risk of extinction per the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and are among the most critical need of conservation management.
Whenever possible we will try to obtain these endangered natives to preserve Georgia’s biodiversity ecosystem.
