Spring Wild Edibles-Identification

Wild Ramps
Join us on Tuesday, May 30th at 5:30 pm. for a Spring Wild Edibles-Identification class to develop and/or further ones love for nature and to spread it to all; to appreciate and respect what mother earth has to offer and to take advantage of the earths generosity, in a good way.

Outdoors-man,  Brandon Young hopes to offer this as a weekly class that will meet in different locations to mainly focus on foraging, this will include plant identification and mushroom identification. Edible and medicinal plants, trees, nuts, berries and anything Young can think of relating to nature will be talked about. Such topics that concern the care for nature may be discussed: The tragedy of the commons, native american philosophies relating to nature, and protected plants. Rocks, geology, hydrology, physics, frugal living, and survival skills may also be included if time allows.

Group will meet at the Presque Isle Bog Walk parking lot.

A suggested donation of $5/adult or $10/family is not required, but appreciated.
