California Natives: Plants and People

Tour/Open House | April 17 | 2-3 p.m. |  UC Botanical Garden

 Botanical Garden

Explore the creative ways California Indians have used plants in their everyday lives for food, shelter, clothing, tools, fiber, medicine, even music, toys and games. Which parts of the plant were used – roots, stems, leaves, seeds, bark – and why? We’ll examine California’s native plants and replicas of Indian artifacts to discover the plant knowledge, customs, and skills of California’s earliest peoples.

This is a docent led walking tour in the Garden.

  Free with Garden admission ($12); Free for UCBG members, UC Berkeley students, staff, and faculty
