Come learn about Okanagan native plants and discover microscopic photography! We will start with a plant walk on campus, learning how to identify native plants, discussing their ecological roles, and how we incorporate them into our own gardens. Returning to the lab we will use microscopes to take a closer look at the hidden beauty of seeds, bark, leaves, etc. Bring your own camera and try your hand at microscopic photography. You will leave with a new artful appreciation for nature!
