Helpful and Harmful Plants Every Hiker Needs to Know

Faulkner Gallery – Santa Barbara Public Library
40 East Anapamu St., Santa Barbara, CA

Join local plant expert Sue Reinhart as shares about helpful plants that can be used right on the trail as remedies and how to identify them, as well as some lesser known edible plants along our trails and how to distinguish them for any poisonous look-a-likes. Sue will also touch on the some of the historic uses of these plants.

Sue taught Edible & Medicinal Plants for over ten years in the SBCC Continuing Education Program, and is the author of Medicinal and Poisonous Plants of the California Central and South Coasts, a comprehensive guide to medicinal, practical, and historic uses of 100 medicinal plants found in our area.

This talk is part of the ongoing Wilderness Hiking Speaker Series hosted by the Santa Barbara Public Library. The talks are the third Thursday of the month and feature topics related to hiking, backpacking, and our local natural history.

The next talk in the series is Thursday, May 16th, Earthy Folklore: The Nature Wisdom in Ancient Tales with Pacifica Graduate Institute Associate Provost Craig Chalquist
