Wicked Plants: The Exhibit

Inspired by Amy Stewart’s best-selling book, “Wicked Plants: The Weed that Killed Lincoln’s Mother and other Botanical Atrocities”, Wicked Plants: The Exhibit is a fun-filled, family-friendly look at some of the world’s most dangerous plants, many of which are commonly found in homes and gardens.

Exciting interactives fill a Victorian-era ramschackled home, where visitors move from room-to-room uncovering secrets and learning about the history, science, and legend of various medicinal and poisonous plant life.

Minnetrista Theatre Preserves Presents: In My Hands, In My Heart
Feb 2 @ 1:00 pm
Minnetrista Theatre Preserves Presents: In My Hands, In My Heart

FREE community event

Minnetrista Theatre Preserves presents ‘In My Hands, In My Heart’. The performance tells the story of two young men working at the Ball Canning Jar Factory in 1928.  Each of these young men make a terrifying discovery as they clean the factory floor: a jar molded with the crest of the Ku Klux Klan. Through evocative storytelling the show outlines the response to their discovery, exploring the historical perspectives and challenges of the time, as well as questions of personal integrity. The performance demonstrates the power of considering the experience of those whose lives differ from our own.

Due to the serious nature of the subject, recommended for ages 12 and up
