Herbal adventures on Waterbury trails - Stowe Today

Wilderness guide Mary Murphy of Mountainsong Expeditions and clinical herbalist Rebecca Dalgin of Wild Heart Wellness are teaming up for a day of herbal adventures in the Green Mountains on Saturday, July 20, beginning at 10 a.m. There will be an option to carpool to the trailhead in Waterbury from Montpelier at 9 a.m. Directions will be sent to participants upon registration.

Join a four-mile hike in the Worcester Range and learn about edible and medicinal plants growing in the mountain forests. Learn about ethical harvesting techniques, identify wild medicinals, sample medicines made from wild plants, and spend time learning to sense the spirit of a plant or grove.

Dress for the weather and bring a daypack stocked with two liters of water, a bag lunch and trail snacks, raingear, and a warm layer. Wear comfortable hiking shoes. The fee for this educational day hike is $30.
