Join Sydney Morical and Cathryn Rann of Wild Wanders on an informative and celebratory walk at beautiful Maclay Flat. Allow yourself to be swept off your feet with the wonder of spring by deepening your appreciation of the plants peeping out of the ground after this long, cold winter! Sydney and Cathryn will be sharing their knowledge about different edible and medicinal plants and mushrooms in the area, with a stronger focus on those in season at the moment. They will also cover identification, foraging techniques, and modes of preparation.

What to Bring: 

  • Clothes appropriate for changing Montana weather conditions – layers, jacket, etc.
  • Good walking shoes or boots
  • Notebook and pencil/pen
  • Water/snacks

Instructors: Sydney and Cathryn 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 for the last four years, 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: $30 MNHC members, $35 non-members.

You can add your MNHC membership to your order when you check out. Scholarships are available! Please call 406.327.0405 to inquire.
