Workshop 3: Max Licher: Native Plant Walkabout
Rain or Shine
Note: Maximum of 15 attendees able to walk on uneven ground
The primary focus will be the identification of our native plants. I’ll will show what things to look for, and give a greater understanding of our flora in the context of our bioregion. I will touch on some of the traditional uses, and share some of our experiences with distilling a few of these plants for essential oils (I’ll have a several samples of these with me from some of the plants that we will see). I’ll be open to any botanical question, and will do my best to share either my knowledge or my ignorance, if that is warranted. We’ll look at the little things as much as the big ones, and nothing is off limits. I can talk about the importance of collecting and cataloging to our knowledge of taxonomy and ecology, and demonstrate how to make a collection, if there is interest.
