Where does ginseng grow? This presentation can help you understand the best habitat for ginseng in the Ozarks. It only grows in specific types of forests in the eastern/southeastern United States.

It won't take you long to flip through these slides, but the presentation itself is one and a half hours - an hour for me to talk and pass around show-n-tell items, with thirty minutes for Q & A - there's usually plenty of questions!

Please contact me (either use the contact info here at Slideshare or search for Wild Ozark in your favorite search engine) if you're interested in booking a presentation for your group in 2017 and beyond. You can also email madison@wildozark.com.
