Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Sonoran Desert: Phoenix Area

Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Sonoran Desert: Phoenix Area

Of the four U.S. deserts the Sonoran is the hottest and most arid, but it ALSO happens to be the most botanically diverse…being home to a large number of edible, medicinal, and utilitarian plants. The spring bloom period, before the searing

heat of summer sets in, is the IDEAL time to explore this majestic landscape of valleys, riparian canyons, and desert mountains. Join us as we learn about a wide variety of useful plants (both common and obscure) found growing in the spectacular wild lands found just outside the city limits. 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.
