2021 Medicinal Plant Hikes

Students of all levels are invited to join us for informative and fun medicinal plant hikes in the greater Portland area. Choose a hike below to learn more about some of the plants that are covered and the hiking difficulty level. Some are half a day walks and very close in, and some are longer full day excursions to more remote locations with important driving and rendezvous instructions.


Study each plant's identification and ecology, historical and modern medicinal uses. Spend time getting to know the plants in the places where they like to live, learning from an instructor with 25+ years of experience in herbalism. Safely enjoy each others' company in the outdoors, at sites with good trails and places for us to stop and talk and be with the living plants.

For safety reasons we are only offering these hikes for very small groups of six or less. So there's lots of time for individual questions.

We update this page all the time with new plant walks and hikes, so check back here often!
