Wild Wanders with Kids and Herbal Lemonade

Event description

Date: Thursday, July 18th
Time: 10:00 - 11:30 a.m.
Location: Montana Natural History Center


Join Sydney Morical and Cathryn Rann of Wild Wanders!

Allow your little wildcrafter a place to shine!

We are foragers by nature and children demonstrate this beautifully, but often lack of adult education means little ones think all plants will kill you unless they come from the grocery store. Come empower your child to harvest with confidence and glee!

Join us as we learn about wild edibles and medicinals along the Clark Fork River Trail. We will talk about identification, ethical and safe harvesting, properties of plants, and how we enjoy them. We'll also do a little bit of wildcrafting to make some herbal lemonade and enjoy some foraged snacks. Feel free to bring a notebook, pen, and guidebook if you wish. Water is also a great idea!

We'll start off by sharing a bit about who we are and why wild food and medicine is such an important part of our lives before letting the rest of the group introduce themselves. After some brief housekeeping we will start our wander which will be under one mile in total. We generally discuss 20-30 different plants and fungi on our wanders and only harvest as a group when populations are abundant enough to support it.

Instructors: Sydney Morical and Cathryn Raan are both passionate and longtime gatherers of wild food and medicine. They have also served on the Board of Directors for the Western Montana Mycological Association since 2018, planning events, teaching a wide variety of mushroom classes and keeping the fungal community engaged and connected. They both have experience in herbal medicine and agriculture (they will teach you about all the wonderful “weeds” around town), and a deep love of this land and all the plants living in their midst. They are humbled and delighted to be two of many on a long strand of plant-loving humans sharing their experience and knowledge with others.

Cost: $35 MNHC members, $40 non-members. Each ticket covers one adult and one child - please make sure to register your child with the free "child admission" ticket so our attendee numbers are accurate. Cost for each additional child is $15.


What’s the refund policy?

The course fee (minus a 25% administrative fee) is refundable if a cancellation is made up to 7 days before the event. No refunds will be issued for cancellations made after this deadline. See our full refund/cancellation policy here.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Nope! We will have a list of all the attendees.
