Before modern medicine, humans relied on plants for healing. Many of our current drugs and medical treatments originally came from plants or are still made from them; for example, aspirin originally came from willow tree bark. Join us for an introduction to common medicinal wild plants in Texas and learn about what healing plants may be growing in your backyard.

Notes: Wear walking shoes and dress for the weather.

Instructor bio: Beau Harger is a compounding pharmacist by day and an outdoorsman in his spare time. He has a deep interest in medicinal wild plants, and uses his pharmacy background to help inform his study of useful plants.
