Ethnobotany of the Plants on the Hill Country Trail

September 26, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

For thousands of years, Native Americans used the plants found in what is now the Texas Hill Country for their culinary, medicinal, and ceremonial needs. Join Gary Poole to discover which plants were important to these early people, what some of these ethnobotanical uses were, and how some of these same plants are used in our culture today. This class will include a tour of the Hill Country Trail and a tasting of some traditional and non-traditional foods made from these native plants. Sponsored by San Antonio Water System.
Fee: $10 ($9 member)

Instructor: Gary Poole, Texas Master Naturalist, member Native Plant Society of Texas
