Hiked to Potrero John Falls last weekend with local plant expert Lanny Kaufer. Lanny has been leading Herb Walks and Nature Hikes in Santa Barbara and Ojai for the past 41 years.
We sampled wild nettle, native thistle, as well as dried toyon berries. And of course took in the waterfall. The article describing our hike and some of the plants we saw, such as nettle, big cone spruce, wild tarragon, Great Basin sagebrush, and yerba santa appears in section A of today’s edition of Santa Barbara News-Press..
Lanny will be leading a nature hike along Potrero John Trail, Saturday, May 6th. He also has an upcoming Nature Hike to Rose Valley Falls, Sunday, April 9th. For a full list of events or to sign up for his newsletter and be in the know, go to https://herbwalks.com/.
