Join us in a journey of discovery of what plants have to show us and learn about the relationship we can have with them. All animals, including humans depend on plants for survival, but it is easy to forget that the food we eat, the air we breathe and many of our medicines come from plants.
Linda Kershaw states in her book Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Rockies “Many of the plants that grow in the Rockies are found in towns, cities and roadsides across the continent; millions of dollars are spent each year controlling weeds that might be better used for food or medicine. An appreciation of how our ancestors survived through the centuries might bridge the gap between the artificial world in which we live and the natural environment in which we evolved.”
Goldenrod is an example of one plant found in our parks, this link gives some information about this plant. http://www.umm.edu/altmed/articles/goldenrod-000251.htm
Take a few hours to step away from our artificial surroundings to commune with plants in nature. Increase your appreciation and connection with your environment by joining us on a plant nature walk.
