EDIBLE & MEDICINAL PLANTS OF THE BAY AREA: Seasonal Herb Walk (Spring Session-South Bay)
From the mist shrouded sea cliffs to the sun-baked arid expanse of its eastern most regions, the San Francisco Bay Area provides us with a chance to view a large variety of botanical specimens all within a relatively small geographical range. Join us as we discover together the diverse array of both edible and medicinal plants found growing within these contrasting yet closely interconnected micro-climates. Historical and modern medicinal applications will be covered along with any edible and/or utilitarian potential. Tips on basic/intermediate plant identification will be offered with a special emphasis on plant family ch...aracteristics as well as differentiating poisonous look-alike plants from their beneficial counterparts.

Interested but don't have a car? Inquire about carpooling options.
Frequently asked questions:
-How long/demanding will the hike be? Typically no more than 2-4 VERY moderate miles...with LOTS of stops to ID/discuss plants.
-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, no pets (for a litany of reasons).
-Is it OK to bring my child? My 6-hour adult-level field classes are in no way suitable for children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.
-I see that hundreds/thousands of people have clicked on «interested and/or going» for this event...what are your class size limits? Don't take Facebook numbers too seriously folks...I cap these types of field classes at around 30 students :) That said, it IS true that my classes tend to fill to capacity months ahead of time...so procrastination is not recommended if you are hoping to secure a spot.
-I noticed you're teaching more than one class in the area, will these classes all be the same? Never. I ALWAYS strategically select contrasting floristic zones for each of my regional field classes and focus on different plants during each session.
-Will there be bathroom accomodations? Some trailheads have bathrooms...others don't...and due to the possibility of unforeseen maintanance/repairs I can't guarantee any will be available. Therefore I recommend taking care of bathroom business en route to class. I'll keep the participants posted with current info in the lead up to the class.
-Will the class be canceled in the event of bad weather? Typically, no. And as is mentioned in the description: «Class will occur RAIN OR SHINE!». Only EXTREME weather with torrential rain, wind, and possible flooding OR severe heat (100F+) will likely lead to a cancelation. I'll keep the participants well informed with current weather conditions in the lead up to the class.
-When should I expect to receive directions, carpool info, and other more specific class details? As is CLEARLY stated in the above class description: «Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by May 23. IMPORTANT NOTE: this message will be sent to the email associated with your Paypal transaction (and for some people this may not be their primary email).»
