Pavilion Dedication

Our new nature center pavilion is the material result of the nurturing, caring, and effort of so many people.  While we have so much more to do, it was nice to take a moment to begin to thank the many that have done so much.   Below are the photos of a little celebration given in honor of the White Oak Education Foundation and the White Oak Nature Center Committee members that worked so hard to make our Outdoor Education Program much better.

Thank You All

Angiosperms (Magnoliopsida)

Magnoliopsida is an incredibly large group of plants it is quite diverse. The group provides us with the most complex key in our search to identify our plant.  While all of the plants in this group make flowers most are quite small, especialy when compared to the Magnolia from whence this group gets its name.  And besides, flowers are present for a very short period so we will try to stay away from the flowers characteristics in this key.  In the spring time you should make every effort th study the wide variety of flowers in our nature center.
