Scientists need YOUR help in studying plants everywhere, including your own backyard! Join us for an introduction to botany, the study of plants. You'll use microscopes and magnifying glasses to observe plants up close and learn how to join our crew of ecoEXPLORERS- kids who submit observations of plants and animals for scientists to study and earn prizes while they do it. Participants, upon registering as a participant at www.ecoexplore.net, receive an ecoEXPLORE patch. Find out how you can earn your Botany Field Badge and a free pass to Mountain Science Expo on April 8, 2017. For ages 5 to 13 but all ages are welcome to attend.
