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.

Wear walking shoes and dress for the weather.
