12:00 am WSU Senior University - The Sex Life of Trees
Five 2-hour walking field trips on and near WSU campus, Lake Park and Woodlawn Cemetary. Participants will discover the fascinating sexual strategies of trees and shrubs: some have a single gender, some both genders on the same flower or different flowers, some change genders as they age or their neighbors change, and some primarily reproduce asexually! Along the way, we will also learn to identify trees without their leaves and observe a large variety of spring wildflowers and flowering weeds. People usually assume that spring trees’ greenish blush is leaf growth, but in many cases the opening buds reveal flowers. **Every other Wednesday**
