Upcoming Birds & Bees Education session
Saturday, March 25th
10:00 – 12:00
Please join us March 25th at the Humboldt Bay National Wildlife Refuge visitor center at 10:00 am for a fascinating presentation on how flowering plants became and remain the dominant plants on land. The talk will begin with some geological history, move on to the anatomy of typical leaves, then to the adaptations of leaves to different environmental conditions, including adaptations of many rhododendron leaves.
Inspire Educate Grow
The Humboldt Botanical Garden is a world-class living museum featuring a wide variety of native and exotic plants overlooking Humboldt Bay and the Pacific Ocean. Our 44.5 acre site features over 7 acres of formal gardens, 5 miles of hiking trails and a wide range of educational and recreational opportunities. The Garden is located in southern Eureka adjacent to the College of the Redwoods, off HWY 101, exit 698. Visitors experience an ornamental terrace garden, the largest native plant garden in Northern California, a riparian area, a temperate woodland garden and a 100-foot diameter earth mound that is the only one of its kind in North America. Our facility provides a safe location for the public to recreate, relax, reflect and enjoy nature while inspiring awe and curiosity about life on earth.
