Wright Park
Dead end of Seymour Street Extension, Middlebury, VT 05753

Join Vermont Master Naturalist Ali Zimmer for an ephemeral exploration and a walk on the wild (flower) side. Enjoy discovering various spring herbaceous plants in a medley of learning including identification, history, medicinal and culinary uses as well as some folklore of the plants that call the fields, woods, and river side of Wright park home.

Ali is a VT native, naturalist, and outdoor enthusiast whose fascination with plants is linked to a deeper desire to find meaning and connection with place and the greater natural world as well as health (our own as well as the living world around us.) Ali enjoyed participating in the Vermont Master Naturalist program as well as numerous herbal studies and courses and has over a decade of experience leading various wild adventures (walks/ talks/demonstrations).
