Our edible plant hikes take you on a deep dive into the native, edible foods, in Kananaskis country. Each hike is to a different eco-system.  You learn the homes of many edible plants.

The hikes are 4 to 8 km long, and are rated as beginner to moderate in difficulty. We stop often, as the plants call to us! The goal is not the summit or a destination, the journey is what we create!

On our edible plant hikes, you will learn:

  • To see a healthy plant community
  • The relationships between the local animals, fungi and plants.
  • To recognize a plant’s habitat
  • The historic and current uses of plants
  • To sample a few plants
  • How to identify some toxic plants.

Your Certified Professional Guide brings deep wilderness awareness skills, wilderness first aid training and safe group management skills, as well as respectful, cultural practices. Our guides are Wilderness First Aid Certified.

Small groups make for great learning, we encourage group size of 6 to 12 people.

All hikes are rated easy to moderate and roughly 4 to 8 km in distance. Time:  9:00 am to 2:30 pm. (from meet up to end of hike, add the drive home to the time!).

Thank you to the Native American Indians!
We honor and acknowledge the teachings the First Nations and Metis people, who have shared their knowledge with all of us through many books and teachers. I specifically want to thank the Nakoda Sioux, the Morely band and the Eden Valley people. I thank the Kainai, Pikani, and Siksika people of the Blackfoot Nation and the Interior Salish, who have historic trade routes and camps here.
We are grateful that your knowledge is still intact and that the teachings are still with the people.
The people have been generous in their sharing, and none of us would know as much as we do, if they were not so willing to share over the decades, with historians, authors and botanists.
We recognize it is time to live in partnership with the Native people of this land. We all have memories and stories with our families and friends on the land, hiking and fishing. We create new stories and memories on the land every time we hike and adventure there,  and this is how we learn to respect the land and the wonderful memories that rest there.  Thank you.
 

"Thank you for the excellent course. It was a great way to learn more about the mountain habitat.”

“Thanks, I really enjoyed my hike with full circle adventures.  I think your guiding style is cool, a little of this and that and even a song, a poem and impressions of wildlife!"

Eva

“Hiking with Julie has awakened my senses, she has taught me to listen to Wildlife, hear running water, and learn about the birds around us. That heightened awareness brings so much pleasure to hiking on the trail.”

“Powderface Ridge was a magical day!”
