During plant walks, I spend time pointing out different medicinal herbs and explaining their uses, while also leading activities to help you heighten your awareness of the natural world and the plant communities around you. These walks can be tailored to fit your interests. For example, a walk could focus specifically on edible plants, native vs. non-native plants, wildflowers, medicinal plants, natural and human history of place, etc. Learn more here:
