Plants of Maine and Beyond with Steven Foster
Offered by: Eagle Hill Institute and
Whether you’re a seasoned natural
history professional or curious outdoor
enthusiast, a working knowledge of
medicinal plants promises new appreciation of
how humans relate to and utilize plants. The
use of plants for medicinal purposes has
preoccupied humans for millennia, across all
cultures and every conceivable geographic
region and landscape. Maine is home to a
treasure-trove of pharmacologically active,
useful and fascinating plants, each with a
story to tell about human experience, past and
present. We will emphasize field
identification, traditional and current
scientific understanding of medicinal plants
found in Maine (and elsewhere), both in the
classroom and the field.
