The Language of Plants, 10:00 – 11:00
Carrie Elvey, TWC Senior Naturalist

People have long attributed human emotions and properties to plants, but plants have a language all their own, sharing information across vast networks. Join us as we learn to interpret this complex language.

Raised Bed Gardening, 11:15 – 12:15
John Niebel, Stark County Master Gardener

Learn the construction process, soil preparation and time-saving irrigation techniques of raised beds.  See the entire process including photos of construction of John’s latest beds.

Garden Design with Native Plants, 1:00 – 2:00
Lynda Price, TWC Senior Naturalist

Based on a fantastic book, Planting in a Post-Wild World by Thomas Rainer and Claudia West, this presentation will introduce a new direction on how to use native plants in your gardens. Inspired by their approach to designing in layers and categorizing plants by their survival strategies and sociability level, this course will help attendees understand how plants thrive in the wild as a way of guiding where to put them at home.

Free Wildflower Walk, 2:15 – 3:30
Tim Lavey, TWC Botanizers

Learn the names and lore of spring wildflowers.

Planetarium Theater Show: “Oceans in Space” @ Astronomy Education Building
May 5 @ 10:00 am

Oceans in Space is a journey of exploration that seeks out places where conditions are favorable for life to exist. This original and thought-provoking presentation highlights the search for extrasolar planets and an understanding of the conditions necessary to form and sustain life. Inspired in part by the goals of NASA’s Origins Program — an effort to answer the enduring questions that spur space exploration — this program introduces audiences to the diversity of life on our home planet even as humans embark on the search for life in the universe.
