July Bark About: Medicinal and Edible Plants in the Charcoal Forest

Sunday, July 14, 2019 - 9:00am to 5:00pm
Join Bark as we explore the amazing world of medicinal and edible plants found in Mt. Hood National Forest. Horticulturist and fire ecologist Rachel Freifelder, MS and Dr. Lupin DeMuth, ND will lead us through a forest that was recently burned. We'll discover the medicinal and edible plants that have emerged from the charcoal to blanket the forest floor.  With over twenty years of botanical and medicinal knowledge, Lupin and Rachel are excited to strengthen your

botany skills and deepen your knowledge of the medicinal uses of some of their favorite plant friends living on Mt. Hood.  Aimed at folks just starting their exploration of medicinal and edible plants, and you’ll be encouraged to share your own knowledge as we learn from each other.

Please consider bringing scrap paper, a writing utensil, and a hand lens (if you have one).

Carpools leave from the Hollywood Grocery Outlet, 4420 Ne Hancock Street, (a few blocks from the Hollywood Transit Center, at the I-84 exit 2) in Portland at 9am sharp.

If you are looking for a ride, please come prepared to reimburse your driver.  If you would like to arrange a meet-up closer to the forest, please let us know by giving us a call at our number below.
