These are leisurely walks to look for edible, medicinal, and otherwise useful plants and mushrooms that are ready for harvest. It’s a pretty slow pace, we typically don’t travel more than about half a mile. But we don’t always stick directly to the trails. So dress to be on uneven ground, dirt, grass, and maybe even get into the weeds and mud a bit. The walks can accommodate slower moving individuals, as long as you can handle the terrain. Bring your camera, a notebook, and water and come find out what Mother Nature has to offer.
Check back with us occaisionally, we add walks throughout the season. For location details and to pre-register, click here. Pre-registration is not required, but it is helpful.
