Mit fogunk csinálni?

The Experience takes place entirely outdoors and socially distanced.

You will experience one of the rarest and most biodiverse habitats in the US, a pitcher plant savanna. The area we will visit is open to the public but requires a knowledgeable guide to truly appreciate.

We will meet outside my home in midtown Mobile, have a brief orientation, then caravan about 45 minutes to our site. At the preserve, we will wander at will through the area, while I tell the story of this significant natural habitat, for 2-3 hours (time is flexible according to guests' interest) and then return to Mobile in early afternoon.

Pine savannas are natural wildflower gardens with sparse trees due to their wetland soils. I will give you my expert's perspective as we view, interpret, and explain the plants, animals, and ecological processes of these beautiful, rare, and important areas.

For insurance and social distancing reasons we will travel in separate cars.
Other things to note
Remember that this is an outdoor experience and be ready for the normal hazards of nature. Rain will not cancel this Experience unless severe. Insect repellent and sunscreen are recommended. If this experience is not available on a day you prefer, contact me for special arrangements.

I'm a 29-year biology teacher and conservation biologist who has led thousands of students on outdoor nature study experiences. The common thread in my many field trips has been my ability to communicate my knowledge of natural history in an engaging and memorable way.

A unique experience! We met Barry at his beautiful home and then drove to the preserve. During our trip, not only did we see at least 4 species of pitcher plants, Barry was able to show and educate us about many other species in the area. We learned so much about the pitcher plant environment. There were other carnivorous plants as well, such as sundews. It was a beautiful day, and it was definitely a worthwhile experience. Traveling with someone who knows so much about the natural world, and is obviously passionate about biology, really elevated our trip. The lunch provided by Barry's wife Georgia was delicious and refreshing, and Barry is an excellent host. This hidden jewel of Alabama is truly breathtaking in tandem with a skilled and engaging biologist. The trip is absolutely worth every penny. I will say, long pants and sun protection are a must, and that together with a good hat and and a sense of exploration will make for a great trip.

I truly enjoyed the whole experience. I felt comfortable and at ease around Mr Barry. He and his wife welcomed us into their home and provided breakfast . The brief PowerPoint at the beginning allowed us an insight into the tour to get us thinking . He was very knowledgeable in the vegetation at the park . We even did a little bird watching . The food for lunch was awesome . He was very encouraging and complimentary of us on our attention to detail, desire to learn , and experience more. It was a great day . I love learning about God’s creation in my own backyard .

Very informative and interesting experience. I may do this again with my mom. Barry and Georgia were accommodating and gracious hosts. Georgia’s chicken salad and pesto was delicious. I made a pig of myself. Great experience to slow down, really look and, thanks to Berry’s expertise, appreciate the plants and scenery around you.

This was an awesome event! Barry is an expert biologist who brought me to a nature reserve full of carnivorous plants. While walking and looking around he explained me how these wonderful plants survive under difficult conditions, with nearly no nutrients in soil. Barry’s wife, Georgia, prepared a delicious lunch which we enjoyed under blue sky with view on nature. Thanks Barry and Georgia! See you again, next spring.
