What Plants Talk About
February 28, 2015
10:00 am to 12:00 noon
Board of Supervisors Chambers, 5100 Bullion Street, Mariposa
Join us for this fascinating film presented by PBS's Nature Program.
We may never look at flowers, seedlings or trees in the same way again when Nature shatters the myth of a passive plant world and uncovers their real secrets.
Plants have been counted and classified, yet we still know very little about them. Incredibly diverse, they are among the world’s oldest and most successful organisms. We have depended on them for life’s necessities from food, clothing, and shelter to life-saving medicine, but who knew that plants are so busy, responsive, and complex. They’re actively engaging with the environment in which they live and actively respond to the nutrients, the predators, and the herbivores that are around them.
