Secret Lives of Plants

Saturday, October 14, 2023 at 1:00pm to 3:00pm

Brian C. Nevin Welcome Center
124 Comstock Knoll Road, Ithaca, NY 14850

Did you know that some plants hire mercenaries for protection?  Or that some plants share their surplus resources with their neighbors? Join Garden Guide Dana Kruser to explore the hidden world of plants and their fascinating adaptations and interactions with other organisms in their environment.  As we visit different locations in the Gardens, we’ll see examples of many different types of interactions -- such as mutualism, commensalism, and parasitism -- and gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for the hidden wonders of the natural world.  Walks will be held rain or shine; please dress appropriately for the weather.  

Fee: $12 general admission; Free for Botanic Gardens members. Learn more about Membership here.

Instructor: Dana Kruser, volunteer Garden Guide

Location:  Meet at the Nevin Welcome Center
