In this intensive, you will learn the fundamentals of plant identification, including botanical terminology, plant family pattern recognition, and ecology. We will also cover wild foods and medicinal plant uses, wild-crafting ethics and sustainable harvesting methods, as well as basic in-the-field medicine making techniques. This intimate, hands-on intensive is designed to build your botanical knowledge, and invite you to deepen your connection with the beauty and breadth of the Rocky Mountain bioregion.
