From the tallest tree to the deepest root, medicinal plants are all around us. With miles of hiking trails, salt water of the bay, fresh water streams in the mountains and exquisite views, dozens of species of flowering plants, trees and ferns in varying ecosystems will delight and open your eyes to the bounty of nature.
Learn their medicinal and culinary benefits, ethnobotany, and sustainable, ethical harvesting methods.
Find out where to harvest herbs on your own and when to harvest each plant for optimum vitality, potency and nutrition.
Gain hands-on herbal experience and confidence in identifying medicinal and food herbs that may very well be growing in your own backyard! Learn how the indigenous people of this region used the plants. You’ll look at plants in a whole new way after this very informative plant walk and become more "at home in the woods" as we hike the trails on a Northwest experience!
We will meet at Washington Park in Anacortes and begin our walk there. Please make note: While the hike will not be strenuous and we will make lots of stops along the way, the total distance is 2.5 miles. Please use good judgement regarding your ability to keep up with the group.
Fee: $28 for members, $35 for nonmembers.
