Prairie Ethnobotany

Learn how humans have used prairie plants on this midsummer hike. The prairie once served us as pharmacy, grocery store, fuel source, fortune teller, purveyor of love charms -- and so much more! Discover a different dimension of the prairie as you enjoy  vibrant summer blooms and grasses and learn about their many historical and traditional uses.
