Upcoming Event

Plant Walk

September 24 at 1:30

The event: We will walk a beautiful, fairly flat section of the trail with a ton of biodiversity. The walk will be under 3k but we will spend a lot of time examining plants along our route as well as the salmon running in the river. You will learn plants along the trail which are edible, medicinal and how people have used them. You will also learn basic botany tips differentiating plants on your future explorations.

Mushrooms noted and their families and relationships are discussed. Bird behaviour explains how they observe us as we wander through nature.
