Big Picture Botany @ Great Falls Discovery Center
Sep 3 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am
Big Picture Botany  – Extended Series Back by popular demand, this series invites you to jump in at any time for one or more sessions to get to know the occasionally tasty, inevitably beautiful, helpfully medicinal, and sometimes dangerous plant world. There are as many reasons to learn to identify plants as there are curious people. We deal more with visual patterns than Latin names to spark your own connection to plant identification. September 3, 10, 17. and October 1. Meet outside the Center.
