Event description

Description

Join us as we welcome a very special guest for our April edition of Free First Saturday in the park! Mark Warren will join us with an engaging talk titled "The Ancient Ways of the Native Americans and How We Can Revive Them Today.”

Mark Warren, owner of Medicine Bow Wilderness School in Dahlonega, GA has been teaching nature and survival skills of the Cherokee and Muskogee tribes to adults and children for more than 45 years. Mark believes today's society can — and should — learn some valuable lessons and skills from those native people who inhabited the southeastern part of the United States hundreds of years before European explorers ever landed on its shores. He will be discussing how some of the most common native plants and trees were used by the Cherokee and Muskogee for food, medicine, insect repellent, crafts, shelter and fire. Mark will bring along some plants and handmade crafts for viewing and discussion.

Sponsored by Northside Hospital.
