Plant Identification Walk

March 26 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

$25

Join us for a guided plant identification walk in Southern Appalachia – one of the most botanically diverse regions of the world, led by Cara-Lee Langston of Wildcraft Kitchen. As we meander along the nature trails at Foxfire, participants will be introduced to useful plants and fungi that can be used as food or
medicine. Topics covered include the basics of botanical identification, ethical wildcrafting and stewardship, and culinary and medicinal uses of wild foods and herbs.

Outdoor Preparedness

Participants should feel comfortable walking 1-2 miles at a gentle pace. Please wear closed-toe shoes with socks and long pants/sleeves to protect against poison ivy and insects. Feel free to bring a water bottle, notebook and pen, backpack, brimmed hat, light rain jacket, bug spray, sun protection, your favorite guidebook, and anything else you may need to feel comfortable outdoors.
