The Bog Tour
Time: Oct 20, 2016 (04:00 PM)
Location: Davis Arboretum

A visit to the Arboretum's carnivorous plant bogs can be as simple as an introduction to the kinds of carnivorous plants native to the southeastern United States. Older students can take a closer look as they dissect the leaves of a pitcher plant and record data on the types of prey consumed by different species of pitcher plants in our bog. Students can also observe how water conservation is addressed in this specific landscape. The program typically includes information about the wetland habitats where these plants are found and the how carnivorous plants function.
