Native Medicinal Plant Hike and Learn
Come join me for a summer hike on Cougar Mountain (where I grew up!). We will walk through patches of devil's club, among towering cedars, under black cottonwoods and through low Oregon grape on this very special mountain east of Seattle. We will learn plant ID, about the history of the area, and about the medicinal, edible and material uses of the plants we encounter.

This class is a good opportunity to get more connected with the land, see somewhere new (or old and dear), and learn about out native forest plants.

We'll spend all day walking, and probably a good amount of time stopped and observing.

Class starts by meeting at 10am at the Sky Country Trailhead near the Newcastle golf club. We'll depart the trailhead at 10:15 sharp, and head into the forest.

Please bring a lunch that you can carry with you and eat on the trail, please bring ample water, a notebook, a camera device (for taking pics of plants) and dress for weather. Please also wear hiking boots or athletic shoes. If you show up in sandals you will be uncomfortable. There will likely be some mosquitos up there as well, so wear repellent if you choose. Please keep chemical scents to a minimum. There is a bathroom at the trailhead, and when once we're in the woods, you'll have to find a tree.

NOTE: This is one of the few classes I have ever taught where I am going to recommend some level of hiking experience and physical shape. We may walk up to six miles, which will include hills and uneven terrain. If that sounds like too much for you, I teach SO many other classes that are not as physically demanding, so please join me for one of those. Please see my website at www.adiantumschool.com

We will not be harvesting during our walk, and I ask that all students do not harvest during class time. As with most public natural spaces in the Seattle Area, harvesting is illegal and discouraged. We may be plucking a leaf here and there for learning purposes.
