The best way to build your relationship to the natural world is to learn the names and uses of the plants you live with. Enrich your experience of the ecosystems you call home, exploring the plants that thrive in the salty beach air or along our deep forest stream beds. Bring sturdy shoes, whatever water and snacks support your best comfort and attention, and a notepad and pencil.
Coastal herb walk will meet at the head of the short trail to the beach on the right side of the lower loop of the picnic area at Priest Point Park. [A riparian herb walk is offered in April.]
