AT: HMNS Lecture: Indigenous Uses of Texas Native Plants

April 8 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am

IN PERSON – Author and naturalist, Dr. Matt Turner will discuss the trees, shrubs, and herbs that Indigenous peoples in Texas commonly relied on for food, shelter, clothing, weapons, medicine, spiritual healing, and other day-to-day uses, with extra attention given to the eastern side of the state. Matt Warnock Turner, Ph.D., is an author, naturalist, teacher, and freelance writer who works at the University of Texas McCombs School of Business. His first book, “Remarkable Plants of Texas,” explores the little-known facts–be they archaeological, historical, material, medicinal, culinary, or cultural–behind our everyday botanical landscape. Copies of “Remarkable Plants” will be available for purchase and signing. Attendees are also welcome to bring their own copies for signing. Visit www.drmattturner.com for more. Cosponsored by Urban Harvest. Distinguished Lectures at HMNS are supported by Apache Corporation.
