Adult Night Hike: Risky Botany

Program Details

June 15th

7:30-9pm

Useful, terrifying or treacherously beautiful, the plants on this night hike all have one thing in common: they can kill you.  For millennia, humans have been extracting these poisonous botanical chemicals for poisons, potions, medicines, and methods of torture.  In this tour, we will visit some of the deadliest plants growing around the arboretum and learn why are they deadly and how have humans wielded them to their advantage and their demise.
