Wild Wanderings: Plant and Nature Walk

Join herbalist Colleen O'Bryant for a stroll along the river in the land that surrounds the apothecary. Walk lasts approximately 2 hours.  
She will identify wild weeds that have been used in medicines for centuries and practical applications including interesting culinary uses.
Each month the plants change in our yards, gardens, fields, and forests come to life with the traditional healing powers of medicine. Whether this is through edible plants, healing roots or the flowers of plants each month will reveal the magic of plants.
The walk will last approximately one hour as we meander through the gardens and forks of the North and South Thornton River.
Find what out how the "weeds" in our beautiful county and your yard can bring nourishment and healing. 

Cameras and field notebooks are encouraged. Plant walk is a rain or shine event.
Work trades available for those that want to participate but can't due to financial concerns.
Please contact Colleen at with any questions.
