2017 State Convention: “It's All About the B's”

It's All About the B's
The 89th Annual Convention April 18 - 20, 2017 at The Lodge and Spa at Callaway Gardens was a great success. The conference center and gardens provided the perfect backdrop for three days of information, fun and fellowship. Our Redbud District hosted planned tours, lectures, great meals and workshops. We met a very special convention guest, Deep South Regional Director Carol Bullard. What better way to focus on Georgia's vital pollinators than to be in one of the state's premier gardens during the height of spring?

Tuesday afternoon offered lectures on the three B's - Birds, Bees, Butterflies. That evening a reception and dinner was followed by a keynote speech by Arabella Dane, nationally noted butterfly expert and flower show judge. On Tuesday afternoon, there was also a special tour of The Little White House where the Redbud District dedicated its garden restoration project. Transportation was provided.

Wednesday featured District Breakfasts, a business meeting, and the Award of Merit Luncheon with a design demonstration. Later, there were rolling tours of the Day Butterfly Center where experts were on hand to answer questions. Some were able to attend both Workshops. The first, "Bats: Unlikely Eco Heroes" and another on "Current Threats and Progress in Protecting all Pollinators and Wildlife." A riotous and funny Awards Program and dinner topped off the evening.

We celebrated wildflowers with a Thursday morning workshop on "Wildflowers and Their Use in the Landscape" prior to the final business meeting. The Installation of Officers and Life Member Recognition Luncheon closed the convention.
