Our main program will be presented by Bo Brown. He will be talking about Native American ethnobotany. First Earth’s Founder and Director, Bo Brown, has been a wildlife biologist since 1985, was Associate Director with Ozark Center for Wildlife Research for it’s 15-year history, and worked as a naturalist for MO Dept. of Conservation in Branson MO for 9 years. His career has taken him all over the U.S./Central America and has provided a wealth of natural history knowledge. While playing music at Silver Dollar City near Branson MO in 1978, Bo and backpacking buddy Don Brink struck up a friendship with tribal chief and medicine man Jim Fire Eagle during a crafts festival. The ancient knowledge he possessed set them both afire to learn, their backpack trips evolved into opportunites to expand and hone those skills.
Feel free to bring herbal refreshments.
