Edible & Medicinal Plants of San Diego County: Herb Walk

EDIBLE & MEDICINAL PLANTS OF SAN DIEGO COUNTY: Seasonal Herb Walk (Fall Session)

From the mild, wind swept coastal bluffs along the Pacific Ocean to the climatic extremes more typical of the remote Sonoran Desert to the east, the San Diego County region provides us with the opportunity to view a large

variety of botanical specimens all within a relatively small geographical range. Join us as we discover together the diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing within these contrasting yet closely interconnected plant communities. Historical and modern medicinal applications will be covered along with any edible and/or utilitarian potential. Tips on basic/intermediate plant identification will be offered with a special emphasis on plant family characteristics as well as differentiating poisonous look-alike plants from their beneficial counterparts.

Interested but don't have a car? Inquire about carpooling options.

Frequently asked questions:

-How long/demanding will the hike be? Typically no more than 2-4 VERY moderate miles...with LOTS of stops to ID/discuss plants.

-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, no pets (for a long litany of reasons).

-Is it OK to bring my child? My 6-hour adult-level field classes are in no way suitable for children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.

-I noticed you're teaching more than one class in the area, will these classes all be the same? Never. I ALWAYS strategically select contrasting floristic zones for each of my regional field classes and focus on different plants during each session.

-Will there be bathroom accomodations? Some trailheads have bathrooms...others don't...and due to the possibility of unforeseen maintanance/repairs I can't guarantee any will be available. Therefore I recommend taking care of bathroom business en route to class. I'll keep the participants posted with current info in the lead up to the class.

-Will the class be canceled in the event of bad weather? Typically, no. And as is mentioned in the description: "Class will occur RAIN OR SHINE!". Only EXTREME weather with torrential rain, wind, and possible flooding OR severe heat (100F+) will likely lead to a cancelation. I'll keep the participants well informed with current weather conditions in the lead up to the class.
