Beal Garden Tour:  Plant Pigments: What They Do for Plants; What They Do for Us

August 11, 2016

12:10 - 12:50 pm

Join Beal Botanical Garden assistant curator Peter Carrington in a tour of the W. J. Beal Botanical Garden to look at a variety of plant pigments. We will look at what services they provide for the world of plants, and why many of them count as nutrients for us humans. We will meet at the pond by the shed at the southeast corner of the Botanical Garden. Time: 12:10-12:50 In case of serious weather, we will meet in the Main Library's Reference Instruction Room, first floor.
