Lewis and Clark National Historical Park is pleased to announce the park’s next free In Their Footsteps guest speaker program. Dorota Haber-Lehigh will be giving a presentation entitled Native Plants: Art, Anecdotes & Advocacy. This program is scheduled for Sunday, May 18 at 1:00 p.m. and she will include a free botanical drawing mini-workshop afterwards.
Haber-Lehigh is an educator, artist, author and forager living in Seaside. In 2013 she published a coloring and reading book titled: ABC of Native Plants of the Coastal Pacific Northwest. The book is for artists young and old. Her passion in foraging began as a child in Poland, and today she forages locally for mushrooms and berries. The book covers native flowers, marine plants and trees. Her goal is to raise awareness of the diversity of native plants and the need for preservation. Many of the plant descriptions in her book include information about how Native Americans utilized the plants.

This third Sunday forum is sponsored by the Lewis & Clark National Park Association and the park. These free programs are held in the Netul River Room of the Fort Clatsop Visitor Center.
Haber-Lehigh’s presentation wraps up the current series. The next season of In Their Footsteps will begin with a September 21 talk.
