The northeast is home to many medicinal tree species, and spring is one of the best times of the year to harvest them- especially medicinal barks- while the sap is running! Learn techniques for wildcrafting bark, how to to I.D. some of our local medicinal trees while they are still in bud before they have leafed-out, their medicinal benefits, and how to capture these properties in your own homemade medicines like tinctures, oils, syrups, and teas. This walk will take us around the land surrounding the Bower Studio and also the vast Quabbin Reservoir, which is right across the street!
