Herb Walk at Powell Butte: Serene and Shady Forests

Monday August 13th, 11am-1pm

We’ll stroll along a shady creek bed through the red cedar and douglas fir forests flanking the southwest slope of Powell Butte. As we meander in the dappled sunlight, we’ll explore the medicine of the native and naturalized medicinals of the forest understory community, like Oregon grape, stinging nettle, roses, hedgenettle, lemon balm, and more!

Cost: Sliding scale $10-25, no one turned away for lack of funds

Location: Powell Butte Nature Park
Meet at SE Ellis and SE 145th. Street parking. No water or bathroom facilities available at this entrance.

Herb Walk at Powell Butte: Late Summer Meadows

Wednesday September 12th, 11am-1pm

Late summer is a richly colorful time for the plant world – we’re likely to find rose hips, hawthorn berries, goldenrod, wild carrot and more on an easy walk up to the top of Powell Butte, where, should we be lucky enough to catch a clear day, we’ll be offered a panoramic view of all the volcanic peaks surrounding Portland.

Cost: Sliding scale $10-25, no one turned away for lack of funds

Location: Powell Butte Nature Park
Meet at the bathrooms at the Powell Butte Visitors center. Enter Powell Butte park on SE 162nd just south of SE Powell, and continue along SE 162nd south up the hill to where it dead ends at the parking lots and the visitors center. This walk will traverse through a sun exposed area, so please come prepared to protect yourself from the elements.
