Nature’s Medicine Cabinet

Date: 

Sun, 04/10/2016 - 2:00pm

All Ages Program
Did you know that willows contain salicin, nature’s aspirin? Cottonwood buds have long been used to make “Balm of Gilead”, a healing skin salve. Devil’s club, while not exactly a hiker’s friend, is valued for many medicinal properties. Come and learn about a handful of local plants that have traditionally been used as medicine. Naturalist Ute Olsson will discuss traditional uses of woody plants, followed by a special workshop to make some of these products. Free program; $5 parking for non-members.
