Meandering the Northwoods Medicine Trail | WisCommunity

What are the plants growing in your backyard and/or in fields and forests of the north country? Are any of them useful medicinally? What role does the natural world play in our health and well-being? On Thursday, October 13th, starting at 12:30, Gigi Stafne will explore the world of botanical medicine in a presentation, Meandering the Northwoods Medicine Trail. She is a past recipient of the North American Medicinal Plant Conservation Award and the National Service Award of the American Herbalists Guild. Stafne has a lifelong passion for plants, people, and this precious planet. This has translated into a personal pathway and full-time profession spanning 35 years. Her adventures range from coordinating health care delegations in Cuba to setting up urban and rural Free Clinics for folks in need in the USA. Gigi operates the Green Wisdom School of Natural and Botanical Medicine and is a guest instructor at many schools in North America. Other gigs have included being Executive Director of Herbalists Without Borders, an international non-profit addressing global health justice, as well as creating the first United Plant Savers Botanical Sanctuary in Wisconsin. Stafne's talk will be in the Blue Hills Lecture Hall (Ritzinger 234) on the UWEC-Barron County campus, which is located at 1800 College Drive in Rice Lake. Thanks to financial support from the campus foundation, this and other sessions of the Thursdays at the U Lecture Series are free and open to the public. Neither parking permits nor seating reservations are required for campus guests.
