“Can the Woolly Bear Caterpillar Predict Winter?” The March 2nd Virginia Beach Master Gardeners Gardening Talk is your opportunity to dive into the fascinating world of Phenology. Phenology is a branch of science dealing with the relations between climate and periodic biological phenomena. Historically gardeners have observed natural events to help us predict the life cycles of plants and animals. Climate change is changing this age-old practice. Changes in phenological events like flowering and animal migration are among the most sensitive biological responses to climate change. Virginia Beach Master Gardener and retired instructor in the horticulture department at Tidewater Community College, Sherry Kern, will present this fascinating information at 7PM on March 2nd at the Virginia Beach/Meyera E. Oberndorf Central Library (4100 Virginia Beach Blvd). The talk is one hour long and free to the public. No registration necessary.
