Jump to registration

Please join me on Saturday, April 20, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for an Herb Walk on San Antonio Creek Trail in Goleta. This easy, family-friendly walk will include identifying, demonstrating and discussing the many uses of wild plants by foragers, herbalists, and naturalists seeking them out for food, herbal medicine, first aid, home remedies, survival, crafts, ceremony and more. This time of year we can expect to find California Bay, Mugwort, Indian Lettuce, California Blackberry, Hummingbird Sage, Black Sage, and Wild Rose, among others. Toxic plants such as Poison Oak and Poison Hemlock will also be identified.

Trailside discussion will include sustainable foraging, Chumash plant uses, and other topics generated by the participants. This slow-paced walk is suitable for all hikers able to walk less than 2 miles round-trip on a level trail and stand for periods of time. Participants will receive an email afterwards with a plant list (including common and scientific names) and other useful notes.

No dogs or smoking, please.

MY WEATHER POLICY: Walks and hikes will go on RAIN OR SHINE unless there is a steady downpour on the morning of the event, probability of thunderstorm, or a solid forecast of either the day before. Light rain or drizzle will not result in cancellation on my part. I will update registrants by email and text, as needed, and issue refunds if I need to cancel because of the weather.

Before the walk, I will have my mobile bookstore on display, including copies of my book, Medicinal Herbs of California, available for sale and signing.
