Carnivorous Plant Show

Presented by the New England Carnivorous Plant Society
Saturday, September 9, 10am–5pm
Sunday, September 10, 10am–4pm

Free with Admission
Plant lovers and all those who enjoy something different will be able to get up close to hundreds of carnivorous plants exhibited by the members of the New England Carnivorous Plant Society. Most people would say carnivorous plants are unique, different, or even strange, but all would agree they are interesting and intriguing. Some are native to New England, and others are from as far away as Africa, South America or Australia, but these plants all share a common bond: they are carnivorous, which means they survive by catching and consuming other living things – in most cases, insects.  More than 300 of these plants will be on display where visitors can see first-hand these unusual plants, and will have a chance to purchase their own from top vendors from the area.
