Local Bird and Plant Walk with Marlee Mountain

Talks/Lectures, Nature

Join local naturalist Marlee Mountain on a leisurely walk along Padden Creek to identify birds and wild edible and medicinal plants. Bring a snack to mix with wild edibles that we will forage. Bring a listening ear to tune into the birdsong. Foraging is an important skill for resilient community. Any knowledge of our environment that the community can acquire allows us to connect more with and respect nature.
