Join Georges River Land Trust on a walk to identify medicinal plants with well-known naturalist Wanda Garland on Thursday, June 23 from 10 a.m. to noon. The walk will take place on a historic property where medicinal plants were collected and the land is now protected with a conservation easement held by Georges River Land Trust.

A botanist, photographer, and longtime educator, Garland inspires burgeoning naturalists, residents and the curious about Maine’s native flora including the medicinal and traditional uses of plants. She leads many field trips in the Midcoast to help educate people about the bounty of wildflowers in local fields and woodlands. The present owners of the conserved property in Warren on the St. George River have offered their land to explore, with Garland, what they know to be the site where medicinal plants were collected in the early 1900s.
