Carnivorous Plants, Fun for All Ages...

Today, Buddy Tignor, Horticulture Instructor, gave a talk on Carnivorous plants to students participating in the Pigeon River Community Center's Summer Enrichment Program. The children were all eyes and ears as they learned how a NC native, the Venus Fly Trap, captures its prey. The children also viewed a slide show covering the tissue culture production of these plants. There were at least one or two future horticulturalists in attendance :-)
