Prairie Ethnobotany

Instructor Cindy Crosby leads a group of students on a walk through the prairie.
Learn how humans have used prairie plants on this summer 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.
