Event Description
(For everyone) Have you ever wondered what that yellow, purple or red flower is? Join our Land Stewardship experts to learn about the taxonomy of plants and their identifying characteristics. We will stroll through our parks to see what's in bloom and talk about the names and features of the plants we see. Botany Walks occur once per month at each of our Urban Ecology Center branches, on rotating Fridays, so you can join them all!
