Ever wonder why ferns are so different from other plants? No thorns, no stings, no bites — what are they doing here? The Texas Discovery Garden in Fair Park is holding a lecture on ferns today, July 19, 2011, at 8pm.
Dr. George Diggs of Austin College in Sherman will be discussing the wide range of ferns in Texas, how they got here, and how they have adapted to the harsh conditions here. This lecture is free and open to the public. However, it makes life easier on the caterer if you email them at Events@TexasDiscoveryGardens.org that you are coming so they have enough food.
The Texas Discovery Garden is hosting this talk as part of a three part lecture series to celebrate its 70th anniversary. As an added bonus to the lecture, if you renew or establish a membership, you get a discount. Family memberships will be only $70 that night. You can obtain more information on line at TexasDiscoveryGardens.org or by calling (214) 428-7476.
