Event description

Description

Come join us as we explore The New Weis Center's property and get first hand experience meeting and interacting with the local plants. We will be studying, drawing, photographing, and eating plants, as well as learning about some medicinal qualities and utilitarian purposes - such as which plant fibers work best for rope making, or which trees have good bark for baskets. We will also identify some poisonous plants, and talk about their hazards. Suggested to bring a notebook, pencil and a camera/cell phone (for pictures only). Great programs for families or small groups.

Instructor: Joe Blevis of Earth Living Skills. Joe is a mentor, naturalist, survivalist, and tracker, and is a certified Wilderness First Responder (WFR). He enjoyes working with children, adults, and families, teaching them these ancient skills and helping them reconnect with the natural world
