Full Circle Adventures has been connecting people to nature for over 20 years. Our wild, edible plant walks, hikes, and snowshoe outings open you to the intelligence of nature. We have learned from the Nakoda Sioux, Kutenai and Cherokee teachings as well as our own experience. Our staff are both of First Nations and European ancestory. They ensure our edible wild plant programs inspire your connection to the eco-regions we live in.

Julie is an IGA certified, professional hiking guide and nature educator. She has interpreted nature to elders, kids and adults in Southern Alberta for more than 25 years. Julie's explored the plants of the Prairie, Foothills, Montane, Sub-Alpine and Alpine eco-regions. Sharing her knowledge about this flora, especially the edible plants, has become her passion.
Plant identification, where they live, wildlife interactions, sustainable harvesting and re-wilding your garden are her specialties. Her goal is to help you discover the wisdom of native plants and become a plant ally.
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:
- The human history of the land and early uses of plants.
- Inquiry-based learning about plant identification and uses.
- Exploratory learning about the relationships between trees, plants, sunlight and the animal interactions within the eco-systems.
- The human impact on the landscape over time. How different world views create very different outcomes for a landscape.
