About this Event

This guided walk will explore Bluff Lake's trails to find wild plants, from grasses to trees, and bring them out of the background and into focus. The many habitats at Bluff Lake host countless plant species with amazing adaptations, beautiful structures, and fascinating origins. Each walk will cover different topics such as seasons, life cycles, and seed dispersal. Participants can expect to spend the entire session outdoors and moving at a relaxed pace, will frequent stops for investigation. No equipment or prior knowledge necessary, field guides will be provided.

Leading the walks will be Gabi May, a self-taught plant guide who recently started sharing her knowledge in Denver with the goal of making plant knowledge accessible to everyone. Her classes include information about edible and medicinal plants and how to identify them, as well as some chemistry facts and indigenous science about specific species. Though not certified, she received most of her knowledge growing up in rural Michigan through generational knowledge.
