You've surely heard of the venus flytrap - you know that plant with the jaws that eats bugs.  Did you know that there are many different kinds of carnivorous plants in the world? There are many here in the United States - some here in California! Join Ranger Dawn for a brief look in to the world of bug eating plants. We'll talk about some of the different ways these plants lure and kill their prey. There will even be a sampling of a few of the different kinds of these plants on hand for us to look at. If you would like to bring a bug to feed to a plant that would be great - just not too big!
Join Ranger Dawn Soles at Sycamore Grove Park, Reservable Picnic Area (Up the road near the Veterans Hospital).
