Field Ecology Excursion: Raccoon Creek State Park
Looking to tie your ever-growing plant knowledge into actual native plant communities? There is no better way than exploring the habitats in our great state parks. Walking on the trails, we will discuss what is growing, why it is growing there and how it might be incorporated into garden designs. Additional walk details will be sent out to registered students.
Combined pricing is available for the June 2 and June 16 walks.
