Albuquerque Field Trip: Native Medicinal Plant Walk

The Albuquerque chapter is hosting a field trip on June 2 about native medicinal plants at the Bachechi Open Space, led by Dara Saville, herbalist. Meet at 11 AM at the Bachechi Open Space Education Building.

This field trip will consist of an easy stroll around the gardens and grounds of Bachechi Open Space to learn about native medicinal plants of our area. We’ll look at the pollinator garden and Bosque habitats to explore the plants that are most useful for our health and well-being. We’ll discuss harvesting, herbal actions, preparations, cultivation, and a little plant ecology along the way. We will walk for about 2 hours and note-taking types may wish to bring a notebook and pencil.

Parking next to the building is limited and overflow parking is available at the adjacent Alameda Open Space, which is accessed from Alameda Blvd, just west of Rio Grande Blvd.
