NEW! Edible & Medicinal Plants of RMNP

Aug 15, 2020


Spend the day exploring the flora of the park with a retired RMNP interpretive ranger. Not only are the plants diverse and beautiful, many have served as the grocery store and pharmacy for earlier people and are still used today. We will focus on these edible and medicinal species with discussions on plant identification, current and historic usage as food and medicine, preparation techniques, using plants safely, and ethical harvesting and conservation, plus some toxic species to avoid.
