CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Hungry plants are waiting for the children of Charlotte.

The botanical garden at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte on Saturday holds a workshop on the state’s heritage in carnivorous plants. The two-hour morning session looks at some of the bug-eating plants that are native to the moist wetlands soil along the state’s southeastern corner and creeping into South Carolina.

Children between 7 and 12 attending the workshop will construct a 12-inch bog dish garden with Venus flytrap, pitcher plant, sundew and bog moss. Cash or checks to cover the cost of the workshops are accepted early Saturday.
