FAMILY PROGRAM: Seeds - From Helicopters to Hitchhikers

Workshop | January 22 | 10-11 a.m. |  UC Botanical Garden


Botanical Garden


Get cozy in our Garden classroom as we explore the wonderous and diverse designs of seeds and their enclosures. Learn how plants make seeds and see an amazing array of seed pods and fruits that aid in their seed dispersal, from papery 'helicopter' wings to natural velcro for 'hitchhiking'. Amaze at their structures under microscopes and open some seeds to find the sleeping baby plant inside. Everyone will make a special seed project to take home.

Includes tour through our exhibit DISPERSAL: Seed Pod Photography by Anna Laurent.
