Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Pacific Northwest: Seasonal Herb Walk (Willamette Valley)

From the lush/primeval temperate rain forests along the coast to the towering snowcapped Cascadian peaks to the east, the Pacific Northwest provides us with a chance to view & experience an impressive number of botanical specimens all within a relatively small geographic range. Join us during the glorious PNW summer season as we discover together the diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing within this spectacularly rich bioregion. Historical and modern medicinal applications will be covered along with any edible and/or utilitarian potential. Tips on basic/intermediate plant identification will be offered with a special emphasis on plant family characteristics as well as differentiating poisonous look-alike plants from their beneficial counterparts. Legal & ethical harvesting guidelines and information about at-risk medicinal plants will also be covered. And given the season, you can bet edible & medicinal berries (and other berry-like fruits) will be an area of special focus.

Interested but don't have a car? Inquire about carpooling options.

Frequently asked questions:

-How long/demanding will the hike be? Typically no more than 2-4 VERY moderate miles...with LOTS of stops to ID/discuss plants.

-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, no pets (for a long litany of reasons).

-Is it OK to bring my child? My 6-hour adult-level field classes are in no way suitable for children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.

-I noticed you're teaching more than one class in the area, will these classes all be the same? Never. I ALWAYS strategically select contrasting floristic zones for each of my regional field classes and focus on different plants during each session.

Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by June 21. No refunds will be issued after June 2.
