A professional naturalist will lead leisurely walks of 2-3 miles along shady creeks and flowery hillsides in the nearby mountains where you will learn to identify, harvest, and prepare useful, medicinal, and edible wild plants without harm to the environment. Try free samples of prepared wild foods: acorn bread, fresh wild salads, healthful herb teas. Or just come along to enjoy and learn about our local springtime wildflowers.
We'll meet in the San Fernando Valley at 8:00 am and form (optional) carpools to wherever Mother Nature is at her most bountiful. We'll send directions to our meeting place as soon as your reservation is received. Driving time to trails usually 30-40 minutes. Return by 2-3 pm.
Bring a day pack, water, lunch, and a sweater or jacket along with good walking shoes or boots. Optional: camera, notebook, pen, pencil.
