Prairie Ethnobotany Webinar
July 31, 2020 @ 9:00 am–11:00 am
July 31 and August 7
All online through The Morton Arboretum
9-11 a.m., Fridays
Two sessions (with a week between for you to hike the prairie and apply the materials. Bring your questions to the second session!)
Learn how humans have used prairie plants on this virtual exploration with The Morton Arboretum. The prairie once served us as pharmacy, grocery store, fuel source, fortune teller, purveyor of love charms — and so much more!
Over the course of two live online sessions, you will investigate the human dimension of the prairie. Learn about the historical and traditional uses of many vibrant summer blooms and grasses.
Online sessions are highly engaging, with the opportunity to interact with your instructor and classmates.bIn between class meetings, continue your learning with an independent assignment that can be done from home or in nearby nature.
