Joseph Pines Preserve Tours
Come join us for guided tours of the last great refuge for native pitcher plants in Virginia at the Joseph Pines Preserve in Sussex County. The preserve represents an aggressive attempt at restoring an indigenous longleaf pine/pitcher plant ecosystem through an ambitious reintroduction effort. Many of the plants now found on the preserve have been extirpated from their natural habitats and are now only found at Joseph Pines. The preserve has expanded to over 232 acres thanks to a loan and grant from the State of Virginia and the entire property is permanently protected with a conservation easement with the Virginia Dept. of Forestry. Tour reservations are required. Contact Dr. Phil Sheridan, 804-633-4336, firstname.lastname@example.org
