These walks are off the beaten path. Alberta’s Public Lands are for the public to hunt, fish, cut firewood and ride horses. They also offer an opportunity to discover the edible foods in the forests of the foothills. The forest floor is the most abundant layer of the forest. Here lies the food of the deer, hare, elk, bears and humans. Here we trek through the woods, no trails and search out large, healthy populations of edible plants to forage for the evening meal.
- Sturdy hiking boots are a necessity!
- Day pack with clothing layers, lunch and lots of water.
- Gloves, clippers
- Personal care items are necessary.
