Elementary Class Trip to Visit Corpse Plant at Cornell

Last week we discovered a very rare plant at Cornell was blooming and so the Namaste Montessori Elementary students planned an impromptu field trip to go and check it out.

We are so grateful to be located on a TCAT bus route....taking the bus is fun, convenient, green, and great for spontaneous field trips. Thanks TCAT!

 There's a reason it's named the corpse plant....when it blooms it smells like rotting meat. We can smell it already and it's not in full bloom yet.

 There are lots of other really interesting plants at the Cornell Greenhouses to learn about...
 We headed over to the lab where Sam's Dad works for lunch and time to play with science.
Thank you Eric Herman and everyone at your lab for hosting our class.
