Hi friends… welcome to the Wild Side… I’m Steve Hall….
Plants have always been a big deal on the Wild Side. We sometimes talk about the importance of preserving native species, or the battle against invasive ones. We often refer to the reliance of plants on pollinators to maintain the foods we eat. And we take you on adventures just to appreciate the beauty of wild flowers.
But our ancestors depended on our forests for a natural pharmacy. In a stroll through Sycamore Shoals State Park… we find flora that.. even today… offers medicinal value.
That rainstorm definitely cut our journey short… but it was still a fun experience!
