Willamette Valley Spring Medicine Plant Walk: Camassia

Date and Times: Saturday April 18, 10:00am - 4:00pm 


Location: Camassia Natural Area in West Linn, directions to meet up location in the pdf.


Our exploration of the incredible Camassia Natural Area includes very easy walking, a gorgeous array of wildflowers, and a lot of stopping to talk about important food and medicine plants! Incredible diversity and multiple habitats in close proximity make this natural area into a truly special place full of magnificent plants. Due to the sensitivity of the area, it is essential that we stay on marked trails and there is a request that hikers not wear heavy-soled boots. 


Spring Plant Walks and Hikes are full-day explorations of different habitats of the Willamette Valley. Study in the field includes plant identification, ecological awareness, discussion of harvesting techniques and considerations, medicinal uses both traditional and modern, and medicine making. 


Willamette Valley Spring Hikes are family friendly! With the following rules: 

  • Children under 12 are free and need not register, and must be accompanied at all times by an enrolled adult. 
  • If a child’s needs must be attended to, their parent or guardian will agree to step away from the group to deal with them, including if they are complaining of cold or other discomfort.
  • Inquisitive and engaged older children may ask questions during the hike, but they may not completely dominate class discussions or be disruptive to the class experience for others in any way, or they and their adult may be asked to step away.


Refund policy: Full refund for tuition up to 1 week before start of class, partial refund with less than one week. Less than 24 hours before the start of class no refunds are possible.


When you purchase the class you will receive a link to download a pdf which will contain directions and other information needed about the class.
