Garden Tour: Plants Toxic to People and Pets, 8:00 PM

Understanding plant toxicity is important to any home-owner to help ensure the safety of family members. Much less understood is the long list of plants, many of which are popular in the world of horticulture and landscaping, that are a threat to our quadruped loved ones. Join Beal Botanical Garden curator Peter Carrington in a tour to identify some of these commonly ignored hazards.


Bring your own picnic or enjoy selections from the MSU Food Truck, including complimentary MSU Dairy Store ice cream.
