11:30 am- 12:30 pm Picnic Lunch/Free Time. Please bring your own lunch.
12:30-1:30 pm Seed Spreader Hike Many plants rely on animals (including humans) to help spread their seeds. We will hike and do some deliberate seed spreading and seed collecting, while we examine how plants get animals to do this important work. Please meet at the Visitor Center.
