June 1, 9:00 am - 1:00 pm
Will Rogers, research professional II, State Botanical Garden of Georgia
If you are amazed by carnivorous plants, you’re in legendary company; the great Charles Darwin shared your passion and enthusiasm for them as well. This course will be a dynamic, hands-on experience getting to know various native carnivorous species as well as a few others from across the world. Learn about various prey capture techniques, unexpected symbiotic relationships, growing requirements, and genetic work conducted here at UGA. There will also be a feeding tutorial since some lucky participants will be going home with a carnivorous plant of their own!
This class is an elective for the Certificate in Native Plants.
