DNI: Plant Explorers

Thursday, August 1, 6:00-7:00 p.m.

Most people do not realize that in the 18th and 19th centuries there were many plant explorers who accompanied expeditions that would bring magnificent plants back to Britain. One of the best known was John Tradescant, Jr., from the 17th century who with his father, brought back many plants from their travels. The genus Tradescantia (Spiderwort) was even named after them. Learn more about these plant explorers and famous others with some fun trivia, make a plant craft to take home, enjoy a plant-based treat, and explore the fascinating plants for yourself in our “Botanica Jones” showcase exhibit!
