Almond Granite Outcrop in Randolph County, AL, one of our state’s most distinctive landscapes, where soil types range from basic to acidic, is inhabited by an array of contrasting unusual plant species – some rare. Situated in the Piedmont physiographic region, this outcrop, which brings to mind the surface of the moon, is home to many fascinating ecotones, due to its geology and hydrology. We will examine a range of diverse habitats ranging in character from xeric to boggy seeps. Participants will see colonies of some very special plants, including one which grows only here and one other location - and even a carnivorous species!
