Why this talk is special: Doc Hale is one of the best-known biologists in the Bay Area. His specialities abound, but for this evening’s presentation he’ll focus on  the rich and diverse Native American cultural history in the East Bay Area, including their material culture and use of medicinal, edible, and useful plants.
This is a topic very few of us know much about, and to hear Doc talk about it is to wonder why we mountain lovers don’t study it as we do the seasons, the wildflowers, the birds. Doc is wise, deeply observant, widely experienced, and very funny. Don’t miss his talk.
