Mt. Talbert is a hidden gem. The largest of the extinct volcanos in the Portland area, this park has an amazing variety of wild habitats, mature forests, animal wildlife and wonderful medicine plants for us to visit. Oak parkland, mixed maple-conifer woods with majestic cedars and douglas fir habitats, and lowland areas of cottonwoods and ash trees make for incredible diversity in a small area.
Hiking difficulty: Easy trails. 3-4 total miles with some elevation gain (maximum elevation 740 feet).
This is a full day of plant medicine exploration. Study in the field includes botanical identification, ecological awareness, discussion of harvesting techniques and considerations, medicinal uses both traditional and modern, and medicine making. Tincture tasting may be included, with the opportunity to purchase plant medicines if desired. There will be a mid-day lunch break.
