No School Friday: Supermarket Botany and More!

Yes! That’s right, Botany in the winter!
Join the Welty staff as we explore plant structure, uses and winter adaptations.
Even during the cold months when very little is growing outdoors, we can still learn a lot about the plants that we rely on everyday for both nutrition and various other products.
We will be exploring plant physiology by looking very closely at many different vegetables and fruits from the supermarket and will be looking at ways to identify trees without needing to look at leaves.
Our hike through the prairie will give us a chance to identify the many shrubs and trees found at Big Hill and to look at the seeds of many others plants.
Program is for school age participants.

$20 members / $25 non-members (bring a lunch and dress for the outdoors).
