Medicinal Plant and Lyme Prevention Walk

July 13, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Join Georges River Land Trust for a medicinal plant walk at the Appleton Preserve to identify and discuss native and invasive plants found in the midcoast. The walk will help people improve their confidence in identifying plants and how some common invasive plants have medicinal properties. With an increase in Lyme disease awareness and fear of ticks, we will also discuss ways to dress tick bites in the field with common medicinal plants as well as other ways to improve immune resilience.

Our trip leader, Steve Byers, is a Clinical Herbalist based in Belfast at the Herbal Medicine Wellness Clinic at 96 High St. His training is in western herbalism and traditional Chinese medicine. He works with an apothecary of over 150 plants and is collaborating with local farmers in this bio-region to make organic medicinal plants more available to our community.

This event is part of our Walks and Talks series, programs about local resources that are open and free to the public.
