PLANTS OF SUNOL REGIONAL WILDERNESS:

IDENTIFICATION AND MEDICINAL USE

(Weekend Campout and Field Exploration)



Sunol Regional Wilderness is just that...wild. This little known gem lies right outside the urban city centers of the Southeastern Bay Area and is criss-crossed by an extensive trail system used for hiking, camping, and backpacking. Alameda Creek, the county’s largest perennial stream, winds through the wilderness area creating a riparian corridor unmatched in the region. In addition to the riparian zone, oak-woodland, grassland, and chaparral communities can be expected as well. Join us on this weekend intensive as we explore many of these habitats while learning about the unique plants found growing there. We will spend the morning and afternoon hiking and botanizing, while engaging in a variety of hand-on activities during the evening hours. Topics/activities to be covered include: plant identification, medicinal/edible/utilitarian uses, plant family characteristics, ethical harvesting guidelines and information about at-risk medicinal plants (no plants will be picked during the course as they are protected within the park’s boundaries), safety issues and tips on how to avoid toxic/poisonous plants, medicine making techniques, microscope sessions for closely observing plant features, natural fibers, primitive fire making techniques, sampling of a variety of edible/medicinal plant preparations, and more!
