Walkabout: Edible, Medicinal and Useful Plants plus Ancient Skills Hike

Prado Regional Park, Chino
Wednesday, June 7
11am – 3pm

Join me for a Walkabout at one of my favorite places! This location offers a wide diversity of plants, environments and animals. We’ll discover a patch of slender milkweed, which is great for cordage (and we’ll look for monarch caterpillars), wild grape, tules, stinging nettle, and so much more!

The Walkabout is a way of “asking” the land for guidance.  It’s a way of finding food, shelter and tools intuitively.  It takes a bit of faith and it’s a lot of fun!

We’ll identify our needs vs. wants, then go for a walk along trails that take us along a beautiful lake, then into a deep forest, a dry eucalyptus grove, and finally along a cool river (with frogs!).

We’ll learn A LOT as we discover how to meet our needs easily and efficiently with our “beginner’s mind”, unfocused awareness and the thrill of the unknown.
