Urban youth may have little knowledge of or interaction with the plant world that ultimately sustains human life.
Students learn to identify local plants through hands-on investigation in the Urban Ecology Lab.
At the Crissy Field marsh, students divide into teams of research botanists, study indigenous plants in the field. In the Arts Workshop, they will have the chance to share the knowledge they have gained as they complete their own plant identification cards for the Crissy Field.
