Event Description

About the Event

Learn to recognize the poisonous and toxic species that live in your  bioregion. They can show up on your camping trip or on a walk through the park, and you may even notice them spring up occasionally in your yard or garden. Take a walk with us and identify some of these. Practice  being humble with the umbels. Fun activities will help us commit important botanical features to memory and distinguish look-similars.


  • A water bottle
  • A small bag
  • Tool of choice for harvesting a handful of herbs

Please wear standard attire for hands-on, outdoor learning.

Tell us if mobility accommodations may be needed, as we will cover a good bit of ground during the class.


Sliding scale fee: $25 - $0, based upon your access to resources.

This class is a part of a 4-class series. There is a 20% discount for registering for the series. (See separate Series: Medicinal Wildcrafting registration).

Please register soon: The class is limited to 20 people.
