Abundant Autumn- Edible Plant Class

Mikaela Cannon is a wilderness guide with a passion for plants and sharing her knowledge! In this class you will walk the Grasslands Trail at ABNC to learn about the various edible plants and their uses. To finish off the experience you will have an opportunity to sample edible treats made from wild plants. This tasting will be held at the covered picnic area, which provides scenic views of Okanagan Lake! You can expect to taste seasonal jams and other goodies that incorporate an element of local flora.

Sampling these treats will be done at your own risk and no dietary substitutions will be made. Due to the nature of this class, we recommend participants are 19+

This class will operate rain or shine, so please ensure you are dressed for the weather and wearing closed toe shoes. Meet at the covered picnic area around 9:50am.
