"Before drugstores and super markets people had to find food, medicine, and everything they needed, in nature." Jim Tolstrup, Executive Director of the High Plains Environmental Center.
Jim will share some of the historical uses of our Colorado native plants, based on his research and the teachings of regional tribal elders. Restoring native ecosystems requires a recognition and an understanding of the role that indigenous people played as land stewards. Check out Jim's blog to learn more about his connection to the Lakota people and his thoughts about our role as land stewards moving forward.
This event is a reprisal of a program Jim presented at the 2019 Landscaping with Colorado Native Plants Conference. A downloadable handout will be provided prior to the event.
