“Seeds are a marvel, worthy of our study, praise, and wonder…” ~Thor Hanson, author of The Triumph of Seeds
Did you know that the world’s largest seed can weigh up to 55 lbs? ... or some seeds can drill themselves into the ground?... or some seeds have sprouted after being stored for over 2000 years? Join us and learn about basic seed biology, plant-animal interrelationships, the marvels of seed dispersal, and much more. We’ll examine a variety of native plant seeds, hear fascinating seed stories, and have fun with some hands-on seed activities. Take home a selection of native plant seeds to plant and enhance your teaching.
Counts for 3.5 contact hours of Criteria II/III for North Carolina's Environmental Education Certification Program.
