Event Description

Ramble along a trail and learn about wildcrafting, harvesting  medicine and insight from plants growing in your bioregion. Fun activities will help us explore local places, listen for and identify plants, and rediscover what many modern minds have forgotten. Learn creative ways to acknowledge the land and our plant relatives. We will be mindful of precautions related to potentially hazardous plants.
