Learn a little, hike a little, eat a little: 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 5:00 p.m. 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. This event is co-hosted by the San Juan Preservation Trust and The San Juan Nature Institute.

The mission of the San Juan Preservation Trust is to preserve and protect open spaces, scenic views, forests, agricultural lands, habitats, watersheds, riparian corridors, wetlands and shorelines in the San Juan Archipelago.
