Fall Foraging - Guided Day Trip

Walk through the Outdoor Discovery Center in Holland with Maggie Conklin, ND, Maven of Heirloom Academy, to learn about the abundant “wild foods” in Southwest Michigan and discover health benefits and interesting uses for plants in your backyard. Outdoor classroom instruction and guided walks highlight the seasonal identification and ethnobotany of these plants and challenge notions of what many view as “weeds.” Participants will receive information and resources to guide future foraging. Bring a notebook and dress for the weather.

Fee includes a snack, a water bottle, a boxed lunch and all gratuities. Expect a fair amount of standing and walking.
