Kloos, who was raised on the outskirts of Los Angeles, first came to Oregon more than 20 years ago and knew he’d found his home. 

He became a forager for wild plants with an interest in making ­medicine because of a disillusionment with the mainstream ­medical system and an ­interest in becoming self-­sufficient.

He operates a couple of natural medicine businesses in Portland. He is the founder and managing director of The School of Forest Medicine, which provides courses on studying wild herbs and making natural medicines. His Cascadia Folk Medicine creates and sells liquid botanical extracts made out of native plants.
