Magnifying the Miniscule: Small Plants with a Big Impact | Virtual class

June 30, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

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. Small plants often have big impacts on their environment, and this class will open your eyes to those plants! Join the Huntsville Botanical Garden as we explore the smaller plants you can find in the Garden, on the trails, and around your own home. You will learn some of the more common small plants, how to find them, and how they impact the world around us.

About the Virtual Classroom: This class will take place in the comfort of your home via Zoom Webinar. Zoom Webinar has no additional cost and is very easy to use. All you need is a computer, tablet, or smartphone with internet access. Once you have registered for the class, you will receive an email confirming your registration and what to expect when using Zoom Webinar.
