A half-day guided Medicinal Plant Walk identifying various plants, trees, and ferns all along the trail and stream. 

Participants are invited to discuss what plants could benefit their personal health, or the health of family and friends. Herbs or roots will be harvested for a cup of tea. This will be a hands-on experience meant to connect people with the living landscape.

Walk guide Poppy Jones (Narragansett Nation) is grateful for his forest life. He grew up in the (Onteoras) Catskill mountains, fishing, hunting, and growing gardens, leading a life close to nature. Jones has over 15 years of experience in plant medicine and foraging. Jones connects with the forest by quietly listening to subtle communication through flora, fungi, trees, and ferns. Jones now teaches and mentors students, friends, and family in herbal medicine at resorts, camps, spiritual centers, foraging walks, reservations, and universities.
