Take an Herb Walk in Southern Oregon! Three rain-or-shine spring herb walks led by Debbie Lukas of Siskiyou Mountain Herbs in Cave Junction will be held to explore the vast array of wild and domestic medicinal plants that grow in the Siskiyou region.
The first two will be held at the Illinois River Forks State Park from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday March 27 and April 24. The third, from 10 a.m. to noon on May 22, will examine herbs that can be grown in a garden, as demonstrated at the home of Siskiyou Mountain Herbs, the Frog Farm, 9044 Takilma Road (nine miles southeast of Cave Junction). During the walks the class will discuss identifying characteristics, habitat, collection techniques, preparation and uses of herbal plants. The cost is $5 to 15 per walk. Preregistration is not necessary, though some supplies are recommended. For details about herb walks in Southern Oregon, contact Lukas at 541-592-3386.
