The City of Calgary’s Wildland parks and Provincial parks are protected pockets of indigenous, wild plants, some even endangered. These protected areas give us easy access to learn to identify the native populations of edible plants.
Learn to identify 5 native plants, their uses and the habitat they grow in on these walks. Knowing how to recognize the plants in the early and late season is often the most difficult. By learning seasonal identification you can plan the best time for using each edible plant.
