Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Wasatch Range: Seasonal Herb Walk
Looming over the northeast edge of the massive Great Basin Desert, Utah’s Wasatch Range couldn’t possibly stand in starker contrast. With its lush verdant canyons and dense coniferous forests it is quite difficult to believe that just a short distance away lies one of North America’s most vast desert regions. Join us during the glorious Northern Utah summer season as we discover together the diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing within this spectacularly rich bioregion. 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. Legal & ethical harvesting guidelines and information about at-risk medicinal plants will also be covered. And given the season, you can bet edible & medicinal berries (and possibly even monsoon season mushrooms) will be an area of special focus.
