Speaker Series: Medicinal Uses of Native Plants

A bounty of medicinal plants surround us. They are lurking in the forest, planted in landscapes, and proliferating in wetlands. Join us as Darren Huckle teaches one how to identify and use some of the most common plants found in the gardens and wilds of Santa Cruz County. Bring your senses of smell, touch, sight, and hearing, as they are sure to be engaged in this interactive and informational talk. Also feel free to bring plants from your own lands/gardens that you would like to learn more about.

Special Presentation by  Secretary John Laird

Join us on Thursday, August 9th, for a very special evening presentation by California Natural Resources Secretary John Laird when he provides us with an overview of natural resources challenges in California and the Central Coast.


John Laird was appointed California Secretary for Natural Resources by Governor Jerry Brown on January 5, 2011. He has spent nearly 40 years in public service, including 23 years as an elected official. During his public service as California’s Secretary of Natural Resources, Laird has made climate change adaptation, water conservation and supply reliability, enhanced relationships with tribal governments, State Parks access, farmland conservation, and oceans sustainability among other issues top priorities. As Secretary, he provides administrative oversight to thirty departments, commissions, councils, museum, boards and conservancies – and is a sitting member of sixteen conservancies, councils, boards and commissions within the purview of the Agency.


The presentation is from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Seating is limited. Attendance is free, but you must reserve a seat.


Please arrive early for sign-in and seating in order that the presentation can begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Be prepared for outdoor seating. Dress in layers for a possible cool evening.


We look forward to seeing you there.
