Magnifying the Miniscule: Small Plants with a Big Impact | In-Person class

June 25, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join the Huntsville Botanical Garden as we explore the smaller plants you can find in the Garden, on the trails, around your own home, and the big impacts they have on their environment. Plants come in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Although we are often drawn to the biggest and showiest members of the plant kingdom, it is important to not forget the smaller species. You will learn some of the more common small plants, how to find them, and how they impact the world around us.

This in-person program includes a walk in the Garden to see a variety of small plants in action!

Members: $35 per person
Non-Members: $60 per person
