Seeing the Forest Through the Eyes of the Native Americans 

Saturday, october 7
9:30 Am - 12 PM

Island ford Unit of CRNRA

To understand that the forest supplied everything that the original Native American inhabitants needed is to grasp the essence of life in America before Columbus. In this program the familiar is elevated to the unique. We’ll explore the use of wild plants for foods and medicines and craft materials. With a little imagination, participants can step back in time to pre-Columbian days. These resources still exist around us and continue to be useful.

Registration required.
