Presentation by Award-Winning Writer and Naturalist Mark Warren
Mark believes today’s society can — and should — learn some valuable lessons and skills from those native people who inhabited this continent hundreds of years before European explorers ever landed on its shores.
He will discuss how some of the most common native plants and trees were used by the Cherokee for food, medicine, insect repellent, crafts, shelter and fire. Mark will bring along some plants and handmade crafts for viewing and discussion.
Meet in front of the Blue Heron Building. We ask attendees to bring their lawn chairs for this special one-hour event with questions to follow.
