Get to know the plants in our ecosystems and explore their ethnobotanical uses on this easy and level hike through the park! Edible plants and trees will be introduced as we meander, with a discussion at each stop about the plant, shrub, or tree—including whether it is edible or medicinal, other uses, and how to identify it. This is a hands-on course where tasting, smelling, and feeling is important. It is taught in a fun and practical way to make the experience educational and enjoyable. Most hikes cover 15-20 different species and vary depending on the season of the year.
