Wild Edibles and Medicinal Plants of Summer (Heather Meadows Plant Walk)

Education, Nature, Green/Environmental

Subalpine meadows are among the most productive habitats for edible plants and medicinal plants. Hopefully, this series of short hikes in Heather Meadows will be timed during the peak of Cascade Blueberry production. Subalpine meadows are also important for medicinal plants. Join us on this relatively easy hike through the meadows in the most beautiful part of the summer. Jazmen Yoder and Jim Davis will lead this identify and taste hike along several trails in the vicinity of Heather Meadows. We will carpool from the southeast corner of the Sunset Square Safeway parking lot leaving at 8:30 AM. Bring a lunch and wear appropriate clothing for the weather that day (i.e., sun protection). We will return by about 5 pm.
