The Prairie at Latta Plantation

Sunday, October 9, we all met at Latta Plantation for a stroll through the prairie restoration project there, and the woods just along the edge of it. Dr. Larry Mellichamp, Will Stuart, Carrie DeJaco, and Laura Domingo were great guides for us, filling us in on tidbits and interesting details about the plants and the wildlife that enjoys them. We were prepared for mud, but the paths were surprisingly dry such a short time after Hurricane Matthew. The weather was gorgeous and  everyone had a great time!
