7 PLANT SECRETS THAT YOU'LL ALWAYS REMEMBER

Want to dig a little deeper into the remarkable diversity of California native plants? Join Executive Director Dr. Lucinda McDade for a gentle morning walk in the Garden. If you are serious about learning (and remembering!), you may want to take notes / make drawings. Bring a magnifying glass / hand lens if you have one.

Open to people of all abilities as we will not be covering great distances. Bring your portable stool if you are uncomfortable standing in one place for five or ten minutes. Bring water.
