These edible plant walks are geared to introduce you to the safe identification of edible, wild plants and introduced species.
Walks take place in the City of Calgary’s Wildland parks, as they are semi-wild landscapes where many native species are protected from development.
On these walks you will learn:
- Safe identification of at least 4 native plants
- To identify a strong plant population and how to know if the plant is healthy
- Parts of the plant that are 'in season'
- The role the plant plays in nature and the habitat they grow in.
Regain your wild spirit. Give yourself the gift of deeper knowledge, about our local wild places.
