Intro to Foraging Hike
Saturday, October 14th, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM CDT
Have you been interested in learning the basics of foraging for wild edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms? Come out for a fall hike through the Baird Creek Parkway, with ethnobotanist, educator, and bio-regional herbalist, Crystal Brown, of Inspired North, to understand the skills needed to get started and what our area has to offer in terms of plants and mushroom to incorporate into your life. Crystal comes from a background in health care as a registered nurse, and uses education and her passion for the outdoors to connect people to a healthier relationship with nature and their food/medicine. This class will include information on safety, ethics, tools, additional educational resources, basic skills and concepts of processing, as well as scouting for what is available in spring, and planning your harvests for the remainder of the year. This class is geared to the beginner and appropriate for all ages (children must be supervised by an adult/guardian). Please dress appropriate for the weather and hiking conditions, as we will be exploring on the trails. For more information on Crystal and Inspired North, go to www.inspirednorth.com
