Ground-level (“bad”) ozone is toxic to plants and animals, including humans. Although ozone is invisible, its effects can be observed on the leaves of certain plants. Get hands-on experience with Anythink's registered ozone bioindicator garden and see for yourself how plants can indicate what's in the air that we breathe. Learn how to detect damage on the plants and help collect data for the National Center for Atmospheric Research. Appropriate for all ages. Please note that this program may cancelled due to inclement weather. Check the event on our website for cancelation notices.
