two EMGV students examining a plant during botany scavenger hunt

Amy Mead, Natural Resources Agent, led the botany class for the Extension Master Gardener Volunteer Class. Afterwards, the MG Students went into the garden on a botany scavenger hunt to find different types of leaves and arrangements (and write down the name of the plant they found it on). This being the middle of September, they were amazed by the number of butterflies, bees, and even a hummingbird moth on the Obedient Plants.

Extension Master Gardeners have their own website to volunteer for different projects in the Brunswick County Botanical Gardens, work with school gardens, etc. Several of our MG Students have already volunteered on the site to work in the Botanical Gardens!3 EMGV students in distance of garden searching for clues for their scavenger hunt

We love seeing how eager this group is to learn more about gardening in our area and are excited for the impact they will undoubtedly make in the community.
