A "downtown plant walk" that investigates native plants in the urban environment, led by anthropologist Allan Richardson, co-author of "Nooksack Place Names," begins at 6 p.m. Thursday, May 29, at Maritime Heritage Park, 514 W. Holly St.
The tour, sponsored by Komo Kulshan Native Plant Society, follows the native plant teaching trail in the park along Whatcom Creek. Participants can learn about the plants, their names and their uses in native Salish tradition.
Meet at the Environmental Learning Center on West Holly Street, at the park. The walk is free and no registration is required. Details: 360-319-6988.
