Summer Foraging & Outdoor Cooking with Northwest Natura

Join Naturalist, Jazmen Yoder on a day of foraging out in the woods. This course will take place on private and public property approximately 2 miles from of Maple Falls. Location is subject to change based on seasonal anomalies such as delayed ripening. We will be foraging berries and other edible or medicinal plants, in addition to any edible mushrooms we may find. For each species, expect short discourse on its edibility or medicinal properties, how to prepare it for medicine or food, and information on its ecology. Expect moderate walking/hiking with frequent stops, self-led exploration, and a lesson in ethical foraging on public lands. Using some of our foraged finds, we will cook or bake together over a fire, and we will make a delicious, ice-cold wildcrafted spritzer to enjoy in the summer heat. 

Please note the location is subject to change based on available plant forage. You will be notified ahead of time if anything changes. *Please register via the website*

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
