Edible & Medicinal Plants of the Mojave Desert: Las Vegas Area

When most people think of Vegas, floristic diversity and natural beauty are probably the LAST things that come to mind. But not to those who know better :) Just a short drive from the chaos of «The Strip» a person can enjoy the solitude and tranquility of one of the most awe inspiring sections of the vast Mojave Desert. Traveling from 479' at the Colorado River westward all the way up to 11,918' at the crest of the Spring Mountains, one can see and experience a mind blowing array of edible, medicinal, and utilitarian plants. The spring bloom period, before the searing heat of summer sets in, is the IDEAL time to explore this majestic landscape of valleys, riparian canyons, and desert mountains. Join us as we learn about a wide variety of useful plants (both common and obscure) growing in the spectacular wild lands found just outside the city limits. Historical and modern medicinal applications will be covered along with any edible and/or utilitarian potential. Tips on basic/intermediate plant identification will be offered with a special emphasis on plant family characteristics as well as differentiating poisonous look-alike plants from their beneficial counterparts.

Interested but don't have a car? Inquire about carpooling options.

Frequently asked questions:

-How long/demanding will the hike be? Typically no more than 2-4 VERY moderate miles...with LOTS of stops to ID/discuss plants.

-Can I bring my dog? Sorry, no pets (for a litany of reasons).

-Is it OK to bring my child? My 6-hour adult-level field classes are in no way suitable for children. Trust me: they would be bored to tears.

-I noticed you're teaching more than one class in the area, will these classes all be the same? Never. I ALWAYS strategically select contrasting floristic zones for each of my regional field classes and focus on different plants during each session.

-Will there be bathroom accomodations? Some trailheads have bathrooms...others don't...and due to the possibility of unforeseen maintanance/repairs I can't guarantee any will be available. Therefore I recommend taking care of bathroom business en route to class. I'll keep the participants posted with current info in the lead up to the class.

-Will the class be canceled in the event of bad weather? Typically, no. And as is mentioned in the description: «Class will occur RAIN OR SHINE!». Only EXTREME weather with torrential rain, wind, and possible flooding OR severe heat (100F+) will likely lead to a cancelation. I'll keep the participants well informed with current weather conditions in the lead up to the class.

-When should I expect to receive directions, carpool info, and other more specific class details? As is CLEARLY stated in the above class description: «Detailed directions and other more specific class info (including carpool networking) will be emailed out to the registered/paid students by March 28. IMPORTANT NOTE: this message will be sent to the email associated with your Paypal transaction (and for some people this may not be their primary email).»
