Junior Botanist- Plants from Down Under

Saturday, December 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

$5
plant with kangaroo ornament

In Australia, it is summer while we endure winter and the plants from Down Under are in bloom. We will look at Banksia‘s cone-like flower and leaves that look like band-saw blades. The Junior Botanists will also learn about what it means when a plant is a ‘fire follower.’ Just like California, Australia has wildfires and some plants have developed strategies they share with Californian plants to cope with wildfires.

This workshop is suitable for 9-12 year olds.

This is a drop off event, but parents are welcome to stay around and explore the nursery and garden; admission ticket or membership required to enter the garden.

Cancellation Policy: Cancellations up to 1-week prior to a class are subject to a 25% cancellation fee. Cancellations less than 1-week prior to a class are non-refundable. The Ruth Bancroft Garden does not issue credits for future classes.
