The author of the award winning book, "Braiding Sweetgrass: Indigenous Wisdom, Scientific Knowledge, and the Teachings of Plants," introduces us to the wealth of culturally significant plants in the Adirondack region. She will explore the philosophy and practices of indigenous stewardship that create and maintain biodiversity. The lessons of traditional ecological knowledge continue to be a source of guidance for renewing a respectful relationship with the natural world.
