EDIBLE & MEDICINAL PLANTS OF LOS ANGELES COUNTY: Seasonal Herb Walk (Spring Session)--Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden

From the wind swept coastal bluffs along the Pacific Ocean to the arid, high elevation mountain peaks of its north eastern border, the Los Angeles County region provides us with the opportunity to view a large variety of botanical specimens all within a relatively small geographical range. Join us as we discover together the diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing within these contrasting yet closely interconnected plant communities. 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.



-SPRING SESSION- (Interior)

Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden (near Claremont, CA)

Sunday, February 24 (2019). 10am-4pm. $50

For those who don't know, RSABG is one of the most notable botanical gardens in the state with a focus mainly dedicated to the cultivation and preservation of native California plants. The garden contains (an impressive) 2000+ taxa of native plants, which are arranged in a series of different plant community zones. The garden is open year-round and provides a FANTASTIC environment for learning about the uniquely diverse flora of our fine state.

Obviously, no plants will be picked from the garden during (or after) class. Instead, the instructor will share a variety of extracts that were prepared with plants harvested legally and ethically from California wildlands.

Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by February 13. IMPORTANT NOTE: this message will be sent to the email associated with your PayPal transaction (and for some people this may not be their primary email).

No refunds will be issued after January 25.

Instructor: Tellur Fenner of the Blue Wind School of Botanical Studies.

Make sure to bring: Water, lunch, notebook, hat/sunscreen, rain gear, and a camera.

Class will occur RAIN OR SHINE! :)

Interested but don't have a car? Inquire about carpooling options.

Frequently asked questions:

-So I paid the class fee via PayPal...am I now officially registered and on the roster? Yes, your spot in class is now secure. PayPal will not accept payments when a class is already sold out.

-How long/demanding will the hike be? Typically no more than 2-4 VERY moderate miles...with LOTS of stops to ID/discuss plants.

-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, no pets (for a litany of reasons).

-Is it OK to bring my child? My 6-hour adult-level field classes are in no way suitable for children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.

-I noticed you're teaching more than one class in the area, will these classes all be the same? Never. I ALWAYS strategically select contrasting floristic zones for each of my regional field classes and focus on different plants during each session.

-Will there be bathroom accomodations? Some trailheads have bathrooms...others don't...and due to the possibility of unforeseen maintanance/repairs I can't guarantee any will be available. Therefore I recommend taking care of bathroom business en route to class. I'll keep the participants posted with current info in the lead up to the class.

-Will the class be canceled in the event of bad weather? Typically, no. And as is mentioned in the description: "Class will occur RAIN OR SHINE!". Only EXTREME weather with torrential rain, wind, and possible flooding OR severe heat (100F+) will likely lead to a cancelation. I'll keep the participants well informed with current weather conditions in the lead up to the class.

-When should I expect to receive directions, carpool info, and other more specific class details? As is CLEARLY stated in the above class description: "Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by February 13. IMPORTANT NOTE: this message will be sent to the email associated with your PayPal transaction (and for some people this may not be their primary email)."
