The Amazing World of Plant Self Defense – Virtual Workshop

February 28, 2023 6:00 PM
6220 Old La Grange Road
Crestwood,
$25 Yew Dell Members; $35 General Admission

Run and Hide isn’t a viable defense strategy when your roots are stuck in the ground. So plants have evolved a dizzying array of defense mechanisms to help them ward off predators of all kinds. From physical barriers (thorns) to chemical deterrents, camouflage, and chemical signaling, you’ll learn that applying deer spray to your hydrangeas isn’t the only defense tactic happening in the garden. Morghan McCool, Biology Graduate Student at University of Louisville, will amaze us with a virtual discussion on these adaptations.

We will send the Zoom link a few days before the workshop.

Please keep in mind that all ticket purchases are final sale. Tickets are non-refundable and non-exchangeable. All programs and events are rain or shine.

For our virtual workshops, a ticket purchase allows for one login; multiple people may watch the one login together.
