Important Information Inside!

Today I went on a hike with a VERY interesting person, James Adams. The hike was to teach folks about the medicinal plants used by the Chumash Native Americans in Southern California. James is a Chumash healer as well as being a botanist that teaches at USC. Oh BOY, was it exciting. I love to hike around my city, and now I will be looking at some of the native plants on the trails in a very different way! Learning a touch about what the folks that were here way before us use to keep themselves healthy was so interesting and helpful.
