Please join me on Presidents’ Day morning, February 20, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. for an Herb Walk on San Antonio Creek Trail in Goleta. Scheduled on a Monday for the weekend warriors, this affordable, 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, Miner’s Lettuce, Mugwort, California Blackberry, Hummingbird Sage, Black Sage, and Chickweed, among others. Toxic plants such as Poison Oak and Poison Hemlock will also be identified.

Please note: An afternoon walk of the same description is also scheduled that day from 1:00 to 3:30 p.m if that is a better time for you. Here is a link to it.

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.

Please note: This walk will take place RAIN OR SHINE unless there is a steady downpour that morning.

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