Knowing Native Plants Series
We feature a seasonal series of classes called Knowing Native Plants, in which learners of all backgrounds discover both the aesthetic and scientific aspects of our native flora through presentations and field hikes around our grounds.
Knowing Native Plants classes are held on Saturdays in the Preserve Auditorium. The fee for members is $15 and for non-members is $20. Pre-registration is strongly suggested as space is limited. Professional CEUs are available for all sessions.
