Seeley Swan Pathfinder
"Wildcraft is the term for using plants that are grown and harvested in the wild," said Kit Paine, when he announced that he is leading a walk to identify and collect local medicinal plants. This is the first in a series of wildcrafting walks planned for this summer. Participants will learn to identify wild medicinal plants and how to prepare home remedies using the plants.
Participants should meet at the parking lot of the Seeley Lake Elementary School at 10am on Saturday, June 5th. Kit recommends that walkers wear long pants, long sleeved shirts, boots, and a hat. Participants should bring books on local plant identification and a notebook. Walkers should also bring small and medium sized paper bags, a small hand digging tool like a trowel, and a knife because Kit will demonstrate how to transplant and propagate wild plants to home gardens.
The walk will last approximately 2 hours, and there is no charge for this introductory session. For more information, you can call Kit at 677-2714.
