Microscope Exploration

With WVU Core Arboretum Director Zach Fowler, learn about different types of microscopes and explore nature and our surroundings. A stereomicroscope can magnify nearly anything by up to about 40x, and a high power microscope can magnify slide-mounted specimens by up to 1000x. These microscopes allow us to make fascinating discoveries just beyond the limits of our unaided visual resolution. Microscopes will also be connected to a projector so everyone can see images on the big screen. Appropriate for all ages. Please pre-register for ALL activities 48 hours in advance at $5 for WVBG members, $15 for non-members. Space is limited, register today! All activities take place at the West Virginia Botanic Garden, 1061 Tyrone Road, Morgantown, WV 26508 unless otherwise noted. Park in the lower parking area. Walks and presentations will last 1.5-2hrs and are free of charge unless otherwise noted. Donations are appreciated and can be made online, or at the kiosk by the lower lot.
