Friends of Oak Cliff Parks Trail Walk – Edible, Medicinal and Useful Plants of the Blackland Prairie (AT)
Saturday, March 2, 2024   11:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Join us for a walk through the native prairie meadow and woods at the Kiest Conservation Area in Oak Cliff.

Our guide is Master Naturalist and respected guest speaker on urban foraging, Bob Richie. He is a Dallas native who has been an amateur naturalist since an early age, spending much of his life outdoors.

On this walk Bob will share his passion for urban foraging. We’ll start with a quick botany lesson on how to positively identify the plants we are looking for and then we will search out and sample some of the fresh and tasty offerings that grow naturally in our area. We will discuss useful and medicinal plants that can be found in the area as well. The conservation area is an 88 acre tract of land with an island of native Texas prairie and over 150 wildflower species.

We will be meeting in the recently completed outdoor classroom. Everyone is invited to attend, and there is no charge. Closed-toe shoes are recommended. Water and insect repellant will be provided.
