Identifying plants in the winter presents a unique set of challenges. Practicing this skill will not only strengthen your plant ID skills, but will also provide you with a renewed sense of abundance for the food and medicine available to us throughout the cold season. We will discuss some winter medicinals and edibles, but also provide a space for connecting with plants outside of their windows of utilization, cultivating ethnobotanical relationships beyond the consumer-driven mindset.
A focus will be on twig, bud, bark & evergreen characteristics, as well as clues for IDing desiccated specimens in preparation for the upcoming season. Get inspired to get outside and explore even on the coldest of winter days!
Please dress appropriately for the outdoors and off-trail walking.
