First off, I want to say before I begin that I found that most volunteers were retired. I guess it shouldn't surprise me because that's what I would do if I didn't work. It was so much fun to be around a united group of people working together for the same cause.
It gets better. A lot of school kids come by and while this exhibit is going on, people will be able to visit Dr. Ratbane and nurse Lan-tana in their lab. They actually have a lab room for kids to use a microscope and look at the plants up close.....it was really something special. Now when I walk by that area near the bathrooms, I'll always think, "That's Dr. Ratbane's office."
"Open daily 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Plants are sneaky – they may be rooted to one spot but they’ve developed many ways to spread pollen and seeds, defend against predators, and snare the food they need to survive. These tactics can be harmful to people and pets, even deadly! The Gardens Wicked Plants exhibit explores the more nefarious members of the plant kingdom – poisonous, carnivorous and just plain mean! Free with admission." http://www.tucsonbotanical.org/events/wicked-plants/
