Natural History: Ethnobotanic Garden

September 20, 2014 @ 4:00 am - 7:00 am

$2 - $7

Join a knowledgeable volunteer for a walk through the Presidio’s brand new collection of plants and hear about their rich history, including a heritage orchard, creosote bed (considered by some to be the oldest living thing on earth), and ethnobotanic exploration garden. See and learn about wolfberry, desert willow, sages, yuccas, agaves, Apache plume, and many more. We are delighted to share how traditional knowledge and customs have helped indigenous people and early settlers use these remarkable plants in medical, nutritional or artisan ways to cope in our often challenging desert environment. Many plants are still used today by local folks in various medicinal or culinary ways. Included with park admission. $5 adult, $2 youth 7-13, children free.
