Join us for a Native Plant Uses Walk on May 23! Herbalist William Broen will discuss traditional and modern uses of plants as well as how a plant’s survival tactics affect how they are used by us, how we can tell a lot about plants through our senses, plant folklore, and other related topics.
COVID precautions: All participants will be required to wear face coverings and physically distance. Space is limited, and only those registered to attend will be admitted. The ENC is currently closed to the public except to those registered for programs.
William’s walks are informative, interactive, accessible, fun, and understandable. He is always happy to share his knowledge of botanical medicine with interested people.
