Saturday, Jan. 28  |  8:30 to 10 a.m.

Discover the evildoers of the plant world lurking in your own backyard and beyond. Inspired by Amy Stewart’s book Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities, this exhibition gives you hands-on experience with some of the world’s most diabolical botanicals – without the risk of intoxication, addiction, dismemberment or other general danger. Subway® will be open for breakfast.


Special Activities:

  • Who’s the Most Wicked of Them All?
    Some plants look beautiful and alluring, but they’re absolutely deadly. Others look repulsive but present no harm to humans. Can you tell which is which?
  • Itty Bitty Botanicals
    Plants are EVERYWHERE! Did you know there are plants you can’t see with the naked eye? Take a look under the microscope and open your eyes to some of Earth’s coolest tiny plants!
  • It’s Alive!
    Plants are alive like us, but what exactly does that mean? Discover why we need plants, and why plants need us, to survive!
