Juliana will present, “Botanical Biographies – Stories from our Native Plants.”
Are you looking to add a little danger, romance, and mystery to your life?? Then look no further than our native plants! Join us for an hour of botanical intrigue as we peek between the petals to learn about the strategies native plants employ to ensure the success of their future generations!
