Plant Walk with Bev Axelsen to be Rescheduled.

We will identify 10 to 20 wild medicinal plants growing in the proximity of the Deep Creek trailhead … some hiking required. The purpose of the class will be identification of plants; followed by observation and study of their cycles of growth, medicinal qualities, flowering, seed production and moving into dormancy. NOTE: Walks are usually held once a month during the summer and fall. The walk on June 10 was cancelled due to weather. Sign up for our email newsletter or contact us using our contact form to make sure you are notified when future walks are scheduled. Time and price for each walk: Saturday, 9am-12n, $25.
