Do you have a sore throat, swollen knee, or are you just hungry? This presentation will begin with a description of using plants for medicinal and food sources, especially the various methods of herbal medicine preparation. The second part of the presentation will consist of a “nature walk” to locate local plants used for medicine and food. We will discuss the best times to collect these plants, what parts to collect and the collection tools used, and what they may be used for medicinally, as well as what parts are simply used for food.
Our speaker will be Richard D. Gitar, Water Regulatory Specialist/Tribal Inspector,Fond du Lac Reservation, Office of Water Protection.
