Member’s Day Trip Travels to Lake Martin

On May 11, members of Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens traveled to Jim Scott’s private garden at Lake Martin in Dadeville, Ala. Nearly 60 people traveled by bus from Birmingham to the sprawling lakefront property, stopping at SpringHouse restaurant to dine and completing the day with a tour of Morgan Creek Vineyards. The annual trip is offered to members of Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens to fulfill The Gardens’ mission of educating the public about plants and as gratitude for the loyal support received by members in accomplishing this mission.
