Archaeobotanist Pam McBride and herbalist Dara Saville offered us a leisurely stroll at Quarai (Salinas Pueblo Missions National Monument) to explore edible and medicinal plants of the area. This trip has been cancelled for obvious reasons, but we will soon provide information about how you can visit this interesting area on your own and what you may find. So check back here by May 20.
We recommend that you plan personal field trips for weekdays, early in the morning, and keeping a safe distance from others not in your household. As usual, bring lots of water, hat and sensible clothing, and use sunscreen.
