Course Description

Plants and animals offer up many different ways of being, becoming, and living. From intersex worms to flowers that transition sex overnight, nature is nonbinary! Learn about and celebrate nature and its many expressions.

This program is open to anyone who is looking to explore nature in an environment that is representative of all identities and expressions. Led by nonbinary nature enthusiast Natalia, this program will offer unique insights into the diversity of biological expression in the natural world.

The registration fee includes admission to the Arboretum, and you are welcome to come early or stay late to continue enjoying the Arboretum's grounds, including its many paved paths and wood-chipped trails.
