About the Event
Learn to recognize the poisonous and toxic species that live in your bioregion. They can show up on your camping trip or on a walk through the park, and you may even notice them spring up occasionally in your yard or garden. Take a walk with us and identify some of these. Practice being humble with the umbels. Fun activities will help us commit important botanical features to memory and distinguish look-similars.
