Horticultural Ecology

April 29, 2022 @ 9:30 am - 2:30 pm

Friday, April 29 from 9:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. | Online
Friday, May 6 from 9:30 a.m.-4 p.m. | Bosarge Family Education Center

Plants interact with their garden environments, from abiotic influences like temperature, pH, humidity, and sunlight, to biotic influences like other plants, animals, fungi, bacteria, and even humans. Learn how plants adapt, compete, and depend on these influences, and get familiar with concepts like parasitism, pollination, and dispersal. After day one’s online session, spend day two in the living classroom of the Gardens where students will put knowledge into action, observing and evaluating both wild and cultivated landscapes.

Please note this class requires participants to show proof of having received all eligible Covid-19 vaccinations, as recommended for their age by the CDC, in order to participate. Because of the dynamic nature of this situation, we ask that you agree to abide by potential future changes in CMBG’s Covid-19 policy designed to address evolving public health recommendations.
