Edible, Medicinal, and Poisonous Plants of the Eastern Rockies
Saturday, October 7th from 9:00am to 4:30pm
Did you know that there are plants growing along creeks and hills in the Denver area that can be used to treat a toothache, help disinfect a wound, or make rope?
Plant knowledge is crucial information for anyone who spends time outdoors from the amateur hiker to the professional ecologist. Your nature experience is enriched when you can find and identify useful plants growing all around you. In fact, this knowledge could be used to save your life.
Spend a full day with Cattail Bob finding, identifying, sampling over one hundred edible, medicinal, poisonous (don’t sample these), tool making, and smokable plants that grow everywhere in the Denver Front Range.
