Lecture to focus on medicinal use of plants

GREENVILLE—The Darke County Park District will welcome Nina Lapitan of Aullwood Audubon Center and Farm to Shawnee Prairie Preserve on March 30, 1 p.m., to discuss the historic use of plants as medicines. Plants are full of amazing chemicals and long ago, people learned that plants could be utilized to treat many illnesses. Nina is neither an ethnobotanist nor scientist. However, she’s studied plants and herbs for nearly 25 years and has presented this topic at Aullwood and various garden clubs. Learn how Europeans and Native Americans used plants, including some of our native species, for a variety of purposes. The program will also include an outdoor walk to search for many of the spring wildflowers discussed during the lecture. This program is FREE but please call the Nature Center, 548-0165, to pre-register, as space is limited.
