Dig into some wicked plants
Wicked Plants: The Exhibit

If you think poison ivy is the meanest green thing lurking in your yard, a new exhibit coming to the Kalamazoo Valley Museum this month may change your mind.

Wicked Plants: The Exhibit, which opens at the museum Jan. 25, explores evildoers of the plant world. Based on author Amy Stewart's best-selling book, Wicked Plants: The Weed That Killed Lincoln's Mother & Other Botanical Atrocities, the exhibit features interactive displays about the world's most villainous plants, including some that may be lurking in our own homes and backyards.

The exhibit runs through May 17, and admission is free. For more information, visit kalamazoomuseum.org.
