Science Sundays Class

Monthly Plant Walk + Ethical Foraging + Wild Tending

Are you interested in learning how to identify plants, how to forage for wild foods and medicines, and how to recognize the incredible ways in which the forest ecosystem is connected?

Join us for Science Sundays classes!

Class Details

This class is a great way to expand your knowledge and appreciation for the amazing plants that grow in the forest. There are things to discover ALL year – even here in Michigan!

During this 1-hr class, you’ll learn:

  • How to identify edible & medicinal plants in the forest, what you can use them for, and where to find them
  • Ethical foraging practices
  • An introduction to the practice of “wild tending.” Wild tending is the practice of acknowledging our human relationship to the natural world and is an approach to foraging that is founded on respect, appreciation and reciprocity to the land, the people who have tended to it, the wildlife, and the amazing plants we meet on our walk.
