May 1 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am
Meet at Sosebee Cove Parking Area at 8 am:
Sosebee Cove is a picturesque high-elevation north facing cove forest covering 175 acres. Due to its north facing orientation, Sosebee Cove has a rich diversity of shade tolerant trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. The forest is a maturing second growth forest, although to many a visitor the area has a feeling of being old-growth. The mesic forest is characterized by very large yellow poplars and yellow buckeyes. Beautiful any time of the year, Sosebee Cover is an outstanding location for nature photography.
Depending on weather and participants, we will venture on to Vogel State Park afterwards.
From Blairsville, GA take U.S. 129 and 19 south for about 9.5 miles. Turn right (west) on to GA 180. Go two miles to the Sosebee parking area on the right (north side) of the highway.
