Junior Botanist- Plants from Down Under
Saturday, December 14, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm$5.00
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.
