Foraging Adventure and Guided Nature Hike

July 17

Foraging is the practice of searching for wild edible food resources. On this tour we’ll find and identify a minimum of 10 types of plants that can commonly be foraged in the Keweenaw area. 

Participants will:

  • learn about foraging ethics and safety 
  • learn how to accurately recognize what they are foraging for
  • forage their own plants to take home to make their own herbal tea
  • use the art of sketching to get to know the plants they forage 

All participants will receive a takeaway guidebook with plant identification and details from the class to use on their own future foraging adventures.

Monday, July 17th, 2023 | Noon – 3pm
Weather Permitting – will be canceled for rain. 
Rain date: Friday, July 21st | Noon – 3pm

For learners ages 9+, maximum 10 students.

This event takes place in Jacobsville at White Sky Woods Homestead. Parents are welcome to drop off students or stay and join as observers. 

The walk is trail-based and will be approximately 0.5 to 1.5 miles, depending on where nature provides what we are looking for. The trail is clear but there is uneven terrain and slight inclines/declines on the trail. Dress appropriately for the weather, sturdy shoes are required (no flip-flops). Sunscreen or sun cover and bug repellent are highly recommended.

Cost: Free for Kaleidoscope Members, $5 for Community Members
