Thusday May 25 - EVENING WALK

Edible / Medicinal Plants and Cool Animals too!

 

Now that the day are getting longer, you can take a break during the week and join me after work for a nice walk at a private property in the Angeles Forest. Not only will you see a lot of interesting exotic animals (camels, tortoises, zebra and much more), you also learn a lot of about local plants. We'll talk about their edible and medicinal properties, which ones are natives, invasives, protected and so on.  You'll even visit my "wild" native plants garden.

 

It's a very gentle walk with lots of stops to talk about the plants and say hi to the animals. Perfect for kids or if you are older too.

 

After the walk, we’ll enjoy some nice wild cold drinks.

 

Long pants and hiking shoes are preferred. We have poison oak in the area.  Make sure to bring some water and sun protection too.

 

We meet in front of the local 711 at the following address:

11348 Sunburst St, Sylmar, CA, US

34°16'39.9"N 118°22'42.1"W

Time: From 6 PM to around 8:00 PM

Donation: $25 Cash on location - $10 (out of the $25) will be donated to the animals.

 

Saturday May 27 - Edible / Medicinal Plants Walk

 

Get ready to learn a lot of new plants!!!!

 

At this time of the year, hahamongna watershed park is loaded with edible plants which can be used for making gourmet dishes. You can also help nature in the process as most of them are actually non-native. We'll see some wild cabbage (Perrenial pepperweed), wild radish, mustard, feverfew (medicinal), plantain (edible and medicinal), tons of curly dock and so much more!

 

The walk is a couple of hours and most of the time we'll stay in the shade. It's a very gentle walk with lots of stops to talk about the plants and their use.

 

After the walk, we’ll enjoy some nice wild cold drinks.

 

Long pants and hiking shoes are preferred. We have some poison oak in the area.  Make sure to bring some water and sun protection too.

 

Location:

Hahamongna Watershed Park

4550 Oak Grove Dr, La Cañada Flintridge, CA 91011

We meet in the parking lot near the baseball field.

Once you enter the park at the intersection of Oak Drove Drive and foothill blvd, drive for around 100 yards and take the first road to the left.

Drive down, turn right toward the baseball field and you'll find a parking lot.  If the parking lot is full, usually they open a second parking lot (dirt area).
