Identifying & Preserving Summer Wildflowers (Ages 10+)

July 19, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Identify and collect summer wildflowers, learning to develop your botany skills with resident botanist and Director of Plant Science & Collections, Melissa Cullina. We’ll visit the herbarium, an exciting resource where Melissa and her volunteers have worked to preserve more than 5000 plant specimens! Students will join in, learning how to preserve the flowers collected during class. Each participant will receive their own plant press to take home. Gardens admission included.

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.
