Program Description

Event Details

Learn about plant defenses with the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC)! Join us virtually to get a lab tour and hear from the Ecosystem Conservation Lab. Plants have physical and chemical defenses to keep insects from eating them. Learn how and why these are important for our ecosystems to remain healthy! We will be conducting some hands-on activities that you can follow along at home!

All necessary materials for this program will be provided at no cost. Pick up a kit at your nearest Anne Arundel County Public Library starting October 2nd (while supplies last).

Not able to pick up a kit from a branch? Just use the attached list of household materials and instructions to follow along at home!
