Medicinal Plant Seminar
(2 day, 1 Night Course)
This seminar will focus on the medicinal uses of 20 different plant species and 10 tree species with discussions on field expedient usage and herbal preparations and harvest for longer term storage and consumption. We will also cover the application of Herbal preparations and creation of Salves, Tinctures, and Ointments. A camera may be beneficial for photographing plants and a notebook and pencil are a must have for the abundance of notes you'll want in addition to the recommended 10 C's we use in our Basic Survival class.
SPECIAL NOTE: If you sign-up for the Wilderness First Aid on June 8th & 9th and complete both courses; then you will receive the next level certification as a Wilderness First Responder.
