Our Host for the morning hike will be Dr. James Adams from the USC School of Pharmacy and Co-author of “Healing with Medicinal Plants of the West – Cultural and Scientific Basis for Their Use”. Topics to be discussed on the trail include: ways that the Chumash Indians use native plants as medicine; the role that these plants play in everyday healthcare; and tips on where to purchase and how to grow your own medicinal plants. We will be on a moderately steep trail with uneven footing. There will be several stops to discuss the plants and their medicinal uses. This event is FREE!!! But space is limited, so you must call us at 818-548-3795 to reserve your place.
