Landfill Plant Dig-Free - Sat., Feb 21 -12-4 pm
The annual landfill plant dig will be held at the New Georgia landfill on SATURDAY, February 21 from 12-4 p.m. Bring shovels, wheel barrows, whatever you need to get the plants out of rough terrain. You will encounter small mountains, valleys, small creeks, Alabama Power right-of-ways, and thick underbrush. Be sure to bring water or soft drinks. If you know your (dormant) plants and know on what kinds of terrain certain plants grow (sun, shade, hill tops, valleys, etc.) you will find almost anything you want which is native to central Alabama: magnolias, ferns, oak leaf hydrangeas, oak, pine, beech, birch, tupelo, black gum, sweet gum, tulip poplar, blackberry, dewberry, winterberry holly
Take I-65 to Exit 264 (north of downtown Birmingham) and follow the signs. You can get driving directions by entering your address and the landfill address (New Georgia Landfill, 2800 47th Ave. North, Birmingham, AL 35207) on the MapQuest address I have provided. http://www.mapquest.com/directions/main.adp
