NPS MidWeek Wildflower Walk: Geology Meets Botany

Location: Holden Arboretum

Geologists take a 4-dimensional view of the world that includes time. Pat Biliter, a geologist retired from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, 15-year Holden volunteer, an Ohio Certified Volunteer Naturalist and instructor, and vice president of the Burroughs Nature Club will lead us on a walking tour that will focus on wildflowers, trees, and other plants that have an ancient geologic history, or grow only on specific types of rocks.
