Meeting Place: Visitor Center
Why will a seed die if it grows directly under its parent? Did you know that some seeds are spread by animals' feet? Charles Darwin once grew 80 plants from the mud he scraped off a bird's foot. Some seeds travel by sailing in the wind. Others float in the water to get to the land. Others hitchhike on animals. Some just get blown in the wind. Join Park Interpreter Flanary as we discover answers about seeds, how they get around, and why seeds are important.
