    Date: June 16, 2022
    Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
    Event Description:

    Please join the Texas Agrilife Research & Extension Center for a presentation by Ricky Linex which will showcase 45 native Texas forbs, shrubs and trees that were used medicinally by many tribes across Texas and the southern US.

    The treatment method and the illness or disease treated will be discussed for each plant. Resources will be shown that can be used to research plants you are interested in to see what tribes might have used the plants.

    The Native Americans utilized many native plants for treatment of various illnesses for thousands of years, much of this knowledge was set aside when synthetic medicines became widely available.
