Beyond the Shop of Horrors: Carnivorous Plants with Maria Thomas

While Audrey II may be the greatest super-villain of the plant kingdom ever to grace the stage and screen, not all carnivorous plants crave world domination. In fact, many species of carnivorous plants are in decline and in need of conservation.

Discover the fascinating world of carnivorous plants just in time for the 3rd Annual Creeping, Crawling and Carnivorous Show, which opens Oct. 6 in the Botanic Garden. Assistant Curator Maria Thomas talks about the diversity of carnivorous plants, their status in the wild and even their medicinal values!

This Brown Bag seminar is open to the public and will be help in the Aquarium and Botanic Garden Education Building. No admission is required to attend the lecture.
