Alien Invasion of the Plant Kind
November 15, 2013 – April 2014
8:30 am to 4:30 pm Daily
Invasive weeds threaten the quality of natural resources on both public and private lands and could cost millions of tax dollars to fix – unless we do something now! This fall, prepare to meet the invaders face-to-face in our new exhibit Alien Invasion: Of the Plant Kind. Discover the the intergalactic and imaginary plant invaders featured in sci-fi movies, literature and comic books from The Day of the Triffids to Little Shop of Horrors. Then consider how Earth’s real plants and animal, like bufflegrass and imported red fire ants, can invade new territory and the very real problems they can cause. Free with Gardens Admission.
Fridays and Saturdays ● 10am and 2pm (March-April)
Learn about the threat of invasive species in Tucson from our live interpreter, Agent Frazzle of the Alien Plant Investigation Bureau. Youth and adults are invited to become trained defenders of our natural ecosystems.Email this page to a friend
