We're sorry, but all tickets sales have ended because the event is expired.

In this walking plant identification workshop, participants will learn to identify over 20 wild plants that can be used for food and medicine. Monarda will talk about how to identify the plants, how and when to harvest and how to use them. We will be looking as trees, shrubs, perennials, natives, non-natives and annuals. Bring a camera and feel free to record or take notes. We will be moving around, but not walking far.

This class will be based at 239 McDonnell Road, near the north eastern edge of Duluth, where there is a workshop outbuilding, outdoor work space, trails, forests, and open fields. Restroom facility is a portable toilet. Since this location is near Lake Superior, the temperatures can be cooler than you think. Plan accordingly.

Please pull down the driveway past the house to the outbuilding and park on the edge of the driveway. Staff will meet you at the outbuilding.
