We’re thrilled to partner with North Carolina Botanical Garden for Saving Our Savannas: Stories of the Longleaf Pine, a six-month series of programs and events honoring the history, ecology, and culture of longleaf pine communities.


Programs include field trips, lectures, workshops, art classes, and more. Many programs will be offered in hybrid format, so you can tune in from anywhere.


Each month focuses on a different theme related to longleaf pine communities:

    • – January: Introduction to Longleaf Pine Communities 
    • – February: Longleaf Pine Natural Areas and Their Amazing Adaptations to Fire 
    • – March: Cultural Significance of Longleaf Pine Communities 
    • – April: The Longleaf Legacy: How a Vanishing Forest Shaped the History and Culture of the Southeast 
    • – May: Taking Action for Longleaf Pine Communities 
    • – June: Leaving a Legacy for the Future
