Miami Group Sierra Club Monthly Meeting-"Wildfl­owers of The Smoky Mountains"

March 4, 2013
“Wildflowers of The Great Smoky Mountains”

Brian Jorg will give a presentation on “The Wildflowers of The Great Smoky Mountains”.

Brian F. Jorg, Manager of Horticulture at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden, joined the organization in 2004. Prior to joining the Zoo, Brian was a horticulturist at Spring Grove Cemetery and Arboretum.
At the zoo, Brian’s responsibilities include managing the Native Plant Program, which includes the conservation, education, and promotion of native flora. He also runs the Annual Trial Program, which includes growing and trialing 200 varieties of the newest annuals available to the industry. Brian also manages the tulip display, in which over 100,000 bulbs are planted seasonally.

Brian’s passion is outdoor photography. To date, Brian has had his photographs published in various books, magazines, field guides, calendars, advertisements and greeting cards. Numerous institutions also use Brian’s images in their educational displays. He runs wildflower photographic trips to The Smoky Mountains, and Clifton Gorge, and Nature trips to the Galapagos, South Africa, and The Amazon.
Whether he is trekking the glaciers of Alaska or the plains of East Africa,
he is constantly learning, observing and documenting nature.
