Free, Docent-led Nature Walk
People & Plants: Stories

Carry out your resolutions to exercise and learn more about the natural world! Start the New Year hiking with Friends of Edgewood docent Harry Cornbleet, who will share stories that illuminate the relationship between people and plants.  Which local shrub is known as “Cowboy Cologne”? How did chemists discover the allergen in Poison Oak?  Do people really make ink from oak galls?

Adults, seniors and families with interested children are welcome. We'll teach parents and children to identify poison oak, common along the trails.

Visitors can complement their docent-led walk by visiting the Bill and Jean Lane Education Center located near the main entrance. Interactive exhibits explain Edgewood’s connection to the surrounding landscape and its history.

Heavy rain cancels this walk.
