Attack of the Plant Nerds II: The Revenge
Continuing Education

Dates & Price

Saturday, April 18, 2020
7:30–9:30 pm—CANCELLED

Fee: $35

Out of an abundance of concern for the well being of our guests and community, and in keeping with the CDC’s guidance to practice social distancing, we are cancelling all assembled group activities and events from March 13 through April 22, which includes all classes originally scheduled during that time. Ticket buyers will be contacted with information about receiving a refund.

Join Chris Thorogood, bona fide parasitic plant expert and author of Weird Plants, on a killer plant safari in the comfort of our Exhibition Hall. Gain new respect for the wonder of carnivorous plants and their sometimes startling real-life behavior.

Following the discussion, explore an imaginary world of plant evil as we dim the lights and present the cult classic Little Shop of Horrors (1960, run time 60 minutes; not recommended for ages 13 or less), including the chance for some lively, active audience participation! You may never look at a plant the same way again. You bring the spirit of fun; we’ll supply interactive props. Light movie snacks, popcorn, and themed mocktails add to the fun. Following the film, join us for a book signing with Thorogood and an opportunity to continue the conversation.
