Utility Plants ID Walk

We will take a little journey through the park to identify various plants and talk about the how's, when's and parts to harvest and process. This walk is a prelude to the upcoming Fire craft I & II & III. We will not actually be collecting material, but we will be moving around the landscape through various habitats and using this time to identify as much as possible.

Even though this is primarily for the purpose of utility plants, foragers are encouraged to come too since we will be doing plant ID...AND it's almost mushroom time and we might get lucky.

    I was having a hard time hearing our host. The group was too large to get close. Also he waited for everyone at first to listen to him but middle to the end he didn't. I liked Mangy White Bushman. I just think that the group was too large.

      I used to cap the group, but then there were people on the waiting list and only half the people who RSVP'd showed up. I'm still working things out. It's hard for me to tell if the group this time was full because it was a Saturday, because there was an event right before this walk or maybe because it was scheduled well in advance. I've thought about doing a prepay RSVP, but don't want to have to do that. I had thought that doing those little fire's would give folks pause to regroup. We'll see what I come up with next time.

    I will be going to just the mushroom workshop for those looking for a ride. I will be leaving around 1 and leaving from SW Baltimore. Does that time schedule work for you?

    This looks like lots of fun, but I am only going to have time for the mushroom workshop. this will help you take a look on what's growing right around your home. I did that last year and found some very helpful medicinal plants. Have a nice time!

    Could I hitch a ride with someone coming from Baltimore? I can meet you anywhere near a bus line!

      Not likely, but it will be up where ever it is.

    This looks fun! Any idea about how long it will last, and is there a cost? Thanks for organizing this. :)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
