Charles Darwin described the Venus Flytrap as "one of the most wonderful [plants] in the world" in his book Insectivorous Plants, but that's just one of the many species of plants that turn the tables on animals.  Come learn about the different adaptations plants have made to catch a bite in poor soils around the world, and a local growers society that's been described as "a lot more fun than those rose people".  Then, take home one of your very own (subject to demand). RSVP appreciated, but not necessary. See web site for more details.
