The McMillan Greenhouse will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday on Thursday, November 28 and Friday November 29. The greenhouse will reopen for typical weekend hours on Saturday November 30. The outdoor gardens will remain open during daylight hours on all days.
Registration for Basic Botany 2014 is still open although the course is filling up fast. Please spread the word around to your acquaintances, gardening neighbors and colleagues, so that they have an opportunity to sign up before it is too late. We will only be able to offer this course once next year. Basic Botany is a core course and the pre-requisite for all other core courses and most electives in the Study in Native Plants Certificate.
This 9-hour course will cover plant kingdoms, structure and function, life stages, populations and eco-types, flowers and plant reproduction. Basic Botany will give the student a working vocabulary and understanding necessary for the remaining courses. In this very engaging course, Dr. Mellichamp will encourage active participation through his lectures and hands-on experiences with plant parts.
Instructor: Dr. Larry Mellichamp
Dates and times: January Fri. 17 (6:30pm-9pm), Sat. 18 (9am-12:30pm), Sun 19 (1pm-4pm). 9 hours total.
