Have you ever looked closely at a flower and wondered why it has a certain shape, size or color? Have you ever wondered why certain plants make flowers, and some make cones? Have you ever wondered what the world would be like without plants? Every one of us interacts with plants on a daily basis whether we are aware of it or not. From each breath we take to each meal we eat to each sip of water we drink, we depend on plants to survive! This class is an opportunity to spend a few hours learning about the basics of botany; simply put, the study of plants. In this introductory class, we will explore various aspects of what defines a plant, including things like their structure, physiology, classification, ecology and pollination. Whether you enjoy growing food, have a home filled with house plants, or simply love being in nature, this class is for you. Come on out and engage with the plant world in a new way.
