When: Sun., June 9, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. 2013
Begin this hike in a small meadow in the old-growth redwood forest Ancestor Grove. From there journey down into the spectacular Sinkyone Wilderness State Park, where hike leader and clinical nutrition consultant Nancy Peregrine will focus on the many edible and medicinal plants that grow wild in Southern Humboldt. From blackberry root to dandelion leaf, this hike will make you think twice before weeding your garden, and is an excellent opportunity to learn about the affordable, abundant medicines that grow right at our feet (and no side-affects!). This hike has a moderate exertion rating and is on mostly even ground. Bring a lunch and water, wear sturdy shoes, and dress in layers. We will meet at the Sanctuary Forest office in Whitethorn at 10 a.m. This hike is free of charge, though donations are gladly accepted and help Sanctuary Forest to offer this program year after year.
