SLO Botanical Garden Presents: Chumash Ethnobotany

Saturday, March 11, 1 – 2 pm 2023
San Luis Obispo Botanical Garden
3450 Dairy Creek Rd, San Luis Obispo CA


Chumash people have used some 150 species of plants for food, medicine, raw materials for making clothing, tools and utensils, religious paraphernalia, and other items essential to existence. Equally important are the ways in which the Chumash thought about plants and were affected by them.

Dr. Timbrook’s informative, illustrated talk will provide a glimpse into the fascinating plant world of the Chumash, including the complex interrelationships between the first people of our region and the environment in which they lived.

This class is $5 for members and $15 for the general public. Anyone aged 13 and up is welcome to participate! Registration is available online through the link below, or in-person at the Gift Shop.

We look forward to seeing you!
