Abstract:
About 2 and one-half miles long and a mile wide, this 1,600-acre area located about two miles from Burgaw is known as The Big Savannah. It is an ever-changing landscape of wildflowers from February to December. Some of the rare flowers found there are the star flower, triantha, sabbatia, and rarest of all, the Venus fly trap. A request was made to NC Legislature for $10,000 to purchase 500 acres for preservation as a park; however, the legislators did not see the value of wildflowers to the state and denied the request.
