Strolling Science Seminar: Murder, Mutualism and Medicine

Love chocolate? Love caffeine?

If you do, then you are familiar with natural products produced by plants.

Join CREW Land & Water Trust and Dr. Maureen Bonness for an informative guided walk through Bird Rookery Swamp, located at 1295 Shady Hollow Blvd. in Naples, on Saturday, March 18 at 9 a.m.

Dr. Bonness will discuss plant natural products and how these products have profound effects in swamp ecology, including the interactions between plants and their swamp co-inhabitants. Toxins, colorants, scents, herbs and medicines are all plant natural products that humans use. While many plant products are used for their beneficial properties, some are used nefariously.

Tickets are  $15 for members and $25 for non-members; reservations are required and spaces are limited. For more information or to purchase tickets, visit eventbrite.com.
