Spring Medicinal & Edible Plant Walk

April 29, 2023
2:00 to 4:00PM
Hitchcock Nature Center

As winter begins to transform into spring, join naturalist and folk herbalist Dustin Clayton for a renewing hike and demonstrations focused on the spring, or vernal, equinox. You’ll learn about medicines the forest offers this time of year, how to recognize ephemeral spring flora, and some tips for learning to recognize local trees. We'll also discuss the stories our ancestors told about springtime, as well as some traditional lore associated with the other beings we share the land with. We'll examine how this body of traditional knowledge has shaped people's relationship with the natural world. Hosted by naturalist Dustin Clayton. Cost is $10/person. Ages 16+.
