Great Blue Heron Field Trip - Sunday, March 26.

Six CFN members joined EFVNature Kids at the Great Blue Heron Nature Reserve for a talk by Metis leader, Joe Smith, on edible and medicinal plants. Big thank you to Alena McIlroy, EFV Nature Kids leader, for welcoming us. Joe made a tea from plants in his garden and Alena provided cottonwood buds, which were added to olive oil to make a soothing rub for aching joints and muscles. After the talk we 6 walked to the heronry to observe about 100 nesting herons. We ended our day over lunch and coffee in the Rotary Reception Building.
