Nature's Medicine Cabinet

All Ages Program

Did you know that willows contain salicin, nature's aspirin? Cottonwood buds have long been used to make a healing salve, and while devil's club may not be a hiker's friend, it has long been valued as a medicine. Naturalist Ute Olsson will introduce some common medicinal plants of Alaska, followed by a demonstration making "Balm of Gilead" from cottonwood buds (take-home salves will be available for a donation). Free; $5 parking for non-members.
