Join us for the Eth­nob­otany and Edi­bles Workshop

Join lead­ing eth­nob­otanist Mac Smith, Fiona Nor­ris from the San Juan Nature Insti­tute, and Kath­leen Foley from the San Juan Preser­va­tion Trust for an infor­ma­tive hike on an amaz­ing par­cel of SJPT-pro­tect­ed land on the west side of San Juan Island. After a brief intro­duc­to­ry ses­sion at the San Juan Preser­va­tion Trust office in Fri­day Har­bor, we will head out for our hike where Mr. Smith will be dis­cussing the tra­di­tion­al uses of native plants. Lau­rie Paul from Fri­day Har­bor’s Mar­ket Chef restau­rant will fin­ish out the day with some wild edi­bles for us to sample.

Date: Sun­day, April 5. Par­tic­i­pant lim­it is 25. Meet at the SJPT Fri­day Har­bor office (468 Argyle Street in the restored Churchill House) at 12 noon. We will fin­ish our day at 5pm so return­ing fer­ries can be met. Please bring your own sack lunch/water and stur­dy walk­ing shoes.

Course fee is $45. Checks can be made payable to the San Juan Nature Insti­tute, PO Box 3110 Fri­day Har­bor, WA 98250.
