Instructor, Juliet Oshiro
Calling All Citizen Scientists! Hikers! Families! Students! Educators!
Do you enjoy watching plants change through the seasons? Would you like to help researchers study the effects of climate change? This workshop will teach volunteers to monitor and gather data on when native plants leaf out, flower, form fruit and other seasonal changes through hands-on training. No experience necessary, but space is limited and pre-registration is required. Details can be found on the workshop's webpage.
The Leucospermums or "pincushion proteas" in the South African Garden are spectacular this year.
