Thank you for visiting my site. I am Cattail Bob. With my roots in  survival training, I have made wild  useful plants my passion and  focus for 45 years. My classes and  books are the "go to" sources for  learning the greatest number of  wild useful plants in Colorado and  the Inter-Mountain West. Wild  useful plants are edible, medicinal,  poisonous, tool-craft and smoke-able. In a typical "full-day" class we identify over 100 different plants. And have fun doing it!

From Canada to Mexico, the Inter-Mountain West is our classroom.
