About Full Circle Adventures

Full Circle Adventures has been connecting people to nature for over 11 years. Our wild, edible plant walks, hikes, and snowshoe outings are renowned. We have learned from the Nakoda Sioux, Kutenai and Cherokee teachings as well as self training.  Based on our staff's First Nations and European ancestors’ lifestyles, our edible wild plant programs  inspire a deeper connection to the land, the eco-regions we live in. 

Discover how native plants shape the community of life around them, the insect, bird and mammal food chain. Let us guide you into the wild places and discover nature’s wisdom together. Sign up and re-wild yourself!

Julie,

I had the pleasure of joining you for your March 26th, Sunday Edible Plant Walk. I was most impressed! You have an obvious passion for plants, speaking about them with obvious fondness and awe, and a deep respect for First Nations culture. As well, you convey information about trees, shrubs, and flowers in an engaging way. Thank you for using your time and energy on behalf of the natural world.

Some of our Programs

School Programs

Your class will become immersed in a local landscape to discover the knowledge of First Nations and the early Europeans. Our inter-disciplinary approach teaches:

  1. The human history of the land and early uses of plants.
  2. Inquiry-based learning about plant identification and uses.
  3. Exploratory learning about the relationships between trees, plants, sunlight and the animal interactions within the eco-systems.
  4. The human impact on the landscape over time. How different world views create very different outcomes for a landscape.
