Spring Foraging - Guided Day Trip

May 27, 2021 11:00 am 3:00 pm

Meet Maggie Conklin ND, Maven of Heirloom Academy and owner of LadyHawk Nutrition in Douglas, at the Outdoor Discovery Center in Holland, MI to learn about the abundance of “wild foods” in Southwest Michigan and discover how sustainable foraging can be a powerful way to deepen your connection with the natural environment. A blend of instruction in an outdoor classroom and guided walks highlighting the seasonal identification and ethnobotany of these plants will challenge notions of what many might view as “weeds.” All class participants will receive information and resources to guide future foraging endeavors. Bring a notebook and dress for the weather. Fee includes a snack, water bottle, boxed lunch and all gratuities. Expect a fair amount of standing and walking.
