About the Event

Join us for a nature walk and workshop to learn about seasonal wild edible plants and fungi, how to gather them sustainably, how to prepare them, and what they taste like! August brings a whole new variety of tasty edible and medicinal plants: wild grapes and blackberries begin ripening, tiny milkweed pods and crunchy purslane are ready to harvest, and sumac cones are bright red and tart and ready to make into sumac lemonade!  After a brief intro to foraging basics and best practices, we'll wander through meadow and woodland habitat identifying edible and medicinal plants and their look-a-likes. When we return with our finds, we'll sample some of what we collected along the way! 

Please note that we will not be harvesting substantial quantities of wild foods on this walk, as this workshop is primarily about sharing a passion for plants and the rich natural world that surrounds us. For every edible plant we encounter, we will identify the species, discuss what parts of it are edible, and talk about any poisonous look-a-likes. However, we will be at the whim of mother nature and may not encounter plants and mushrooms at the prime stage for harvesting. But don’t worry, tasting these wild foods is a must, and we’ll be sure to have some foraged snacks prepped in advance!

Advance registration for this event is required, and space is limited. However, admission for this event is included in an Eco Camp reservation! Book a weekend stay and join us for our Friday Night Fire with s'mores and stargazing, this Saturday morning Foraging Workshop, and our special Sunday afternoon Indigenous Birds of Prey Presentation!
