Plant Ramble Identifies Medicinal and Edible Plants
Lorna Mauney-Brodek will lead participants on a plant ramble from 5 to 7 p.m., August 11, with information on how to identify usable plants in the wild. Participants will discover what usable plants may be in their own backyard and enjoy a beautiful evening walk in the woods.
