Cockleburs — Nature’s Hitchhiker & Nature’s Nature’s Velcro®   Leave a comment

Cockleburs — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Sabino Canyon has lots of cockleburs. Each cocklebur contains two seeds. We enjoy taking children on hikes talking about plants and animals as a naturalists. However, most of the children have never seen a cocklebur, so when you try to place one on a child’s shirt, they back off. Let’s face it; the prickly seedpods don’t look all that friendly. However, when we put one on your own shirt and show them how nature’s Velcro® works, they quickly put the seedpods into practice placing them on one another shirts.
