About the Event

Nature reveals a different path in Autumn and beckons us to explore further on. Ramble along a beloved Iowa City trail and find  seasonal wild medicines such as goldenrod, rosehips, pine, sumac, and  turkey tail mushroom. Learn about plant ID, preparation, and how  to bring in simple observances to acknowledge the land and medicine  plants.
