Ethnobotany in the Crum Woods

June 7, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:45 pm

$20 – $30

With over 300 native species and over 150 introduced species of plants, the Crum Woods is truly a cosmopolitan forest.  This class will be a two-hour walk through the Crum Woods with local gardener and Crum Woods expert Mike Rolli, focusing on the seemingly endless uses of these plants – as food, medicine, fiber, timber, and more. Various harvestable plant parts will be discussed, including whole plants, shoots, leaves, bark, roots, flowers, fruit, resins, saps, and wood.  Come learn about traditional and current uses of our woodlands plants, and much more. Dress for weather and walking; please note this tour will, at times, have a quick pace and cover uneven ground and hills. Limit 25.

Members: $20                   Non-members: $30

Call 610-328-8025 to register.
