FSU Mountain Herbalist Series to Hold Presentation on Medicinal Flora of Appalachia
Mimi Hernandez, outreach coordinator of the Appalachian Center for Ethnobotanical Studies at Frostburg State University, will speak at Mountain City Traditional Arts, 25 E. Main St., Frostburg, about the medicinal flora of Appalachia on Thursday, Feb. 2, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The event is free and open to the public. The event is part of the Mountain Herbalist Series, and will present fascinating stories of medicinal flora’s traditional uses and how science supports many of those uses.
The Appalachian area is one of the most diverse and abundant ecosystems for medicinal plants. This presentation is designed to familiarize students with the most common medicinal herbs of the area, and will highlight a variety of new plants not yet discussed in the previous Mountain Herbalists Series.
The purpose of Hernandez’s work as an herbal and holistic health educator is to teach about the traditional reverence as well as scientific understanding and intuitive awareness about this topic. For more information, contact Hernandez at 301-687-3136 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
