Eco Week 2006
Cedar Point Park

Cedar Point Environmental Park

Day 2

The Food and Medicine Walk


Half the kids went with Uncle Denny and half with Uncle AL
I went along with Uncle Al's group this day
And off we went into the forest to find native plants that could provide food and medicine

Every so often, Uncle Al would find one of many interesting plants that were used by local indians for food, medicine and other things

Uncle Al twists the fibers from the dried Spanish Moss 
to show how Calusa Indians made strong ropes and nets

Shiny Blueberry


save the sea turtles

Dog Fennel - smells yucky

Coontie roots made good flour after the pink color is washed out 
Picking tar flowers

Tar Flower is very sticky

Crab Eye seeds are poisonous

Saltwort seemed to be one of the kids favorites

Coin Vine was known for its coin shaped seeds.  It was also known as Fish Killer Vine, as the Indians discovered they could put large amounts of it into a pond and it would remove the oxygen from the water... bringing the fish to the surface.
