Beal Garden Tour (Oct 13): Plants and Animals, A Study in Cooperation
October 13, 2016 @ 12:10 pm - 12:50 pm
William James (W.J.) Beal is an MSU icon known for his role in the development of hybrid corn and the creation of the beautiful Beal Garden.
Join Beal Botanical Garden assistant curator Peter Carrington in a tour of the W. J. Beal Botanical Garden to look how plants and animals have developed complex strategies to ensure the survival of the ecosystem. We will look at plant strategies and tricks that influence animals to help them out.
We will meet at the pond by the shed at the southeast corner of the Botanical Garden. Time: 12:10-12:50 If there is serious weather, we will meet in the Main Library’s Reference Instruction Room (1st floor).
