Wonder As Your Wander

Our small group will explore Wildcrafting, the practice of foraging for useful plants in their natural, wild habitat for edible or medicinal purposes. Director Therese Oldenburg has been spending time during the lockdown to learn more about wildcrafting in regards to the plants and trees growing at the Confluence Campus. She’ll share what she has learned; we’ll discuss a variety of these plants, learn together and have some group knowledge sharing time. We’ll also discuss the art of Slow Walking. Therese will be using the PlantNet app for help in identifying plants and you can choose to install it on your phone to bring along on our wander.

This introductory program is a small group learning experience, limited to 6 participants to allow for physical distancing. We will supply a magnifying glass that you can take home. After our walk you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy a glass of Violet Lemonade made from violet syrup Therese made this spring.

Please bring: Your own mask, sunscreen, bug spray, notebook, pen or pencil, your smartphone or camera to take photos, baggies for samples, a backpack to carry your items. Closed toe shoes are recommended.  We will be staying on the trails and will not be in tall grasses.  

Program Fee: $10 includes take home magnifying glass, violet lemonade refreshment

Woods Of Wonder Programming: We believe that nature is magical and amazing, and the more time and opportunity people have to spend time in it, the better.  Nature At The Confluence’s goal for 2020 is to fine tune your visual strength beyond the typical 20/20 and help develop all of your senses. Our programs will focus on the value of imagination and appreciation of nature’s smallest details. The programs will celebrate the beauty and wonders that can be discovered as you step outside our doors and into nature!
