Nature Study Series – The Lives of Plants
Plants touch every aspect of our lives. They provide us with food, shelter, beauty and the air we breathe. They have killed kings and saved millions. This series explores the plants, both large and small, that grow in our backyards, impact our lives, and shape history. Classes are $10 each or enjoy the entire 6-part series for $45. Call TWC to pre-register and get your ticket. Series tickets are transferable; if you miss a class, you can send a neighbor to take notes for you.
