Nature Walk: Ethnobotany

July 22, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am


Join us on a nature walk with Josie Gonzales, a Certified Interpretive Guide, and Texas Master Naturalist. She’ll discuss Ethnobotany — how people of a particular culture and region make use of native plants. Plants sustain people not only as food and as medicine but provide materials, dyes, tannins, wax, latex, soap, resin, and oil.

There will be a brief overview of ethnobotanical concepts prior to the walk. On the walk itself, a wide variety of forbs, shrubs, and trees will be discussed from the standpoint of medicinal, utilitarian, and nutritional uses.

Note: Please wear closed-toed shoes, dress for the weather, and bring some water to drink! Restrooms are available at the Urban Ecology Center.
