Nature Walk: Ethnobotany
Ethnobotany is the study of how people use plants for food, medicine, tools, and more. On this walk, participants learn how the Native Americans and pioneers used native plants in their daily life and how some of these plants are still in use today. Come and learn the uses of some of the common plants occurring naturally in our park.
Janis Merritt, Master Naturalist and member of the Native Plant Society of Texas-SA, leads the walk. She shares her experience as Curator of the Native Plant Area in the SA Botanical Garden and work in COSA Natural Areas.
Meet in the patio area of the PHP Urban Ecology Center in the west side of the park (8400 NW Military Hwy). The program is presented by the Sierra Club, the Alamo Area Texas Master Naturalists, the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy and San Antonio Parks & Recreation. It is free and no registration is required. A donation to the PHP Conservancy of $3/ person OR $5/ family is suggested.
