Join author and native plant guide Lanny Kaufer on Sunday, October 23 at the Santa Barbara Botanic Garden for a free herb walk. This 60-minute walking tour will enhance your visit to the Garden as you learn about some of the plants featured in Kaufer’s book, Medicinal Herbs of California. During the walks our guests will seek out the California native plants that are featured in Kaufer’s book. He will discuss tips for correctly identifying the plants, their growth habitats, and their traditional and modern uses as medicinal plants.
