Getting Animals to Carry the Ball

Friday, September 13

Tour the W. J. Beal Botanical Garden with Assistant Curator Peter Carrington to examine how plants get animals to carry their seeds to the right places to insure the next generations. All levels of the animal kingdom can be drafted into helping plants to get seeds and spores to where the conditions are right. That includes us bipeds as well as almost everybody else.

*In case of inclement weather, please join us in the Main Library North Conference Room (W449) for a virtual tour of the Beal Garden.
