    At the Folsom nature hike the guy said what I thought
    To be miners lettuce was not. He gave it another name.
    Tonight at the slideshow it was called miners lettuce.
    Can anyone help me out with this ?
    Had a great time, thanks

      Hey, not sure exactly where the miss hap happened without looking at the actual plant that was said not to be miner’s lettuce. Sometimes it goes by indian lettuce but that shouldn’t have caused the confusion. I’ll be happy to point some miner’s lettuce out next time we are in field! Glad you had a nice time!

    Had a great time at Alicia’s presentation! Talked about some wild edibles that are available throughout different seasons and how to prepare them into different foods. Learned yarrow is good to stop bleeding and that manzinita berries make a yummy sugar/flour. Got to try many wild prepared foods including a douglas fur tea. Great time with lots of info, always fun to see Alicia and hear her insight!
