The walk will begin at 9 a.m. at a site of great native plant diversity, the Arroyo Burro Estuary/Mesa Creek Restoration Area at the east end of the Arroyo Burro (Hendry’s) Beach parking lot. From there the group will slowly climb up the trail to the Douglas Family Preserve overlooking the ocean, returning to the parking lot by 12:00 noon.
The focus of the Herb Walk will be on identifying useful native and naturalized plants and learning about the many ways that they have can be utilized for food, home remedies, wildcrafting, foraging, survival, landscaping and more. Poisonous plants will also be identified.
