On exhibit September 16, 2017 – January 7, 2018, inside the Baker Exhibit Center, The North Carolina Arboretum’s popular, one-of-a-kind traveling exhibit,Wicked Plants, returns to the Arboretum this fall! Inspired by author Amy Stewart’s best selling book “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities,” this fun-filled, family-friendly exhibit gives visitors a safe, hands-on experience with some of the world’s most harmful plants and diabolical botanicals.
Featuring more than 100 plants and thrilling two- and three-dimensional interactives, Wicked Plants is set inside a Victorian-era ramshackle home where visitors migrate from room to room and learn about various poisonous plants that may be lurking in one’s own home or backyard. By incorporating history, storytelling and science, Wicked Plants provides visitors with a treasure trove of bloodcurdling botany that will entertain, alarm and enlighten.
See the miracle of metamorphosis before your very eyes. On display May 13 – October 29, inside the Baker Exhibit Center Greenhouse, Winged Wonders is an indoor butterfly exhibit featuring a chrysalis-rearing chamber and a walk-through butterfly house where visitors can meet a whole host of local butterfly species, including monarchs, swallowtails and more.
With over 250 waterfalls within Transylvania County, it’s no wonder that you don’t know where to start looking for them! We’ll guide you to five of the most beautiful of the bunch, leaving room for some education on the unique history of Pisgah National Forest and maybe a little flora and fauna ID. We’ll end the trip in beautiful downtown Brevard with a wine tasting at Broad Street Wines. Make the most of your trip to the NC Mountains! Hiking up to one mile and pre-registration are required for this tour. Bring a sack lunch and rain gear. Please call 828-884-3443 for more information.
