The Savage Garden: Carnivorous Plants for Beginners

  • This event has passed.

Contrary to some sci-fi movies, there are no carnivorous plants capable of trapping people. Insects and small animals are another story! Ryan, a botanist by training, presents the evolution, natural history, and distinctive habitats of this fascinating group of plants, from sundews and bladderworts to Venus flytraps. Learn how to make a small bog garden at home and view Mt. Cuba Center’s collection of amazing “insectivores” along our largest pond’s edge.(Rain Date: Friday, September 27)
