Join us for a walk in the woods, as we explore the story of the trees and relationships with the mushrooms that help them thrive.
We will be hitting the trails on the Lake Superior College campus and ending at their new Living Laboratory. Along the way you will learn how to read the history of the forest and ways our species effects the world around us. We will be stretching the limits of our normal human understanding of sight and time and try to look at the world from natures point of view, specifically the mushrooms, microbes and plants. You will learn about the collaboration for survival vs. survival of the fittest.
At the end of our walk we will be touring Lake Superior College’s food forest in the making, and discuss how we can use observations in nature to solve human caused environmental issues.
By the end of class, you will go home with a clearer understanding of how the plants, fungi and microbes work together, and how we can use those relationships to our advantage.
