Jay Kranyik, the Botanical Gardens of Asheville manager, leads a naturalist walk through the gardens to explore and demystify many facets of scientific nomenclature in a way that is entertaining and empowering for those seeking a closer relationship with the natural world. Latin and Greek word roots will reveal how color, form, texture, region, and even people show up in common and scientific names. Lessons will be offered in a fun, non-intimidating and memorable way. The walk happens rain or shine. Pre-registration is required, and the walk is limited to 24 people.
