Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Sonoma Coast

Join us Sunday, September 27th at Fort Ross State Historic Park for an easy hike as we explore the incredible flora that grows all around us here in the Sonoma Coast. During this seminar, we will learn the traditional medicinal and edible uses of our local plants through story and observation. Come and join us as we celebrate our diverse flora along our beautiful coast line. We will meet in the parking lot of Fort Ross State Historic Park at 10 am and start the hike from there. Bring stable shoes, water and a bag lunch.
