Foraging for Edible and Medicinal Herbs at Babler State Park

Join Laura for a foraging walk/hike through Babler Memorial State Park to collect edible and medicinal herbs.

As we transition from summer to fall, there are many edible and medicinal plants that are producing flowers, fruits, or nutrient-rich roots that can sustain the long drought of winter. Such plants are tremendous resources for us to care for ourselves and our loved ones, and can be preserved so that we may utilize these gifts long after they are harvested.

Join us for a botanical hike on September 22 at Dr. Edmund A. Babler Memorial State Park to learn how to safely identify and consciously collect some of these herbal allies. Be sure to dress comfortably for a walk through nature, including sun and insect protection. You are encouraged to bring small pruning shears or scissors, materials for note-taking and a bag for your collections. Feel free to bring a small plant identification book along too!

Plan to meet at Joy of Yoga at 8:30 and then caravan together or, you are welcome to meet us at Babler at 9:15.

Contact Laura to arrange if you would like to meet at Babler instead (920) 740-8852.

All are welcome. No experience necessary.

Laura is a botanist trained in evolutionary biology. She received her PhD and works as a local researcher. Outside of academic pursuits, she is deeply interested the natural world and human uses of plants. She is very excited to explore how to incorporate herbs into her physical, mental, and spiritual health among other plant enthusiasts.
