Kinnikinick Group


My group chose the name Kinnikinick. The Kinnkinick is a flower and the Kinnikinick is useful for controlling erosion on river banks. I think it is fantastic that the kinninick was used as a diuretic for kidney diseases and urinary tract infections. Did you know in Russia and Sweden, they use the leaves for tanning leather? This is because of high tannin produced.
