Rosemont Preserve Native Plant Tour
Join us on Saturday, February 28th from 9:00am – 11:00am for a guided walk at the Rosemont Preserve. Learn to identify local native plants on this tour led by Nicholas Hummingbird, an indigenous Californian with a background in habitat restoration, ecology, plant medicine and environmental horticulture. Co-leading the walk will be Tim Martinez, Outreach Coordinator for the Arroyo Seco Foundation and board member of the Arroyos & Foothills Conservancy. Both are passionate conservationists who work tirelessly to preserve our native habitat for future generations.
Sample chia seeds, elderberries and other native foods as we discuss the various medicinal, spiritual and practical uses of native plants as they have been used in Southern California for thousands of years.
Native plants will be available for purchase after the tour.
